Treatment


 Breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy)

Lumpectomy or Partial Mastectomy is a breast conserving breast cancer procedure where the cancer is removed with a safe margin of surrounding non-cancerous tissue.

Fiber-optic ductoscopy for nipple discharge

A procedure used to determine the source of nipple discharge. A tiny fiber optic camera is inserted into the duct of the breast to look for abnormalities.

Skin/nipple-sparing mastectomies for immediate breast reconstruction

A breast cancer procedure removing all of the breast tissue through a small opening in order to leave ample skin for immediate breast reconstruction.

Sentinel lymph node biopsy for reduced side effects 

A breast cancer procedure used to find if cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm.  A radioactive tracer is injected around the site of the breast cancer and travels to those lymph nodes most likely to have metastatic disease.

GeneSearch™ breast lymph node assay 

This test finds cancer molecules within the sentinel lymph nodes.  The GeneSearch™ test often prevents the need for additional surgery at a later date.

Venous access port placement for chemotherapy

A catheter surgically placed for ease of intravenous access either for drawing blood or administering medicines.  The catheter access device is usually implanted on the chest just under the skin.

 Partial breast irradiation for accelerated treatment and decrease side effects

Radiation therapy delivered by a radiation seed through a catheter placed in the breast at the time of the lumpectomy surgery.  This type of radiation therapy takes only 2 weeks to complete with decreased side effects compared with traditional radiation therapy.

Internationally recognized clinical research

 

Clinical trial participation opportunities

We offer enrollment in many surgical and chemotherapy trials that allow patients to take advantage of cutting edge advancements in breast cancer care.
