Breast Cancer Surgery
I am in need of breast cancer surgery.
Surgery is a first line treatment for breast cancer. Your breast surgeon tailors your operation to your specific needs, working with you to choose the optimal approach based on your tumor as well as your personal preferences.
Types of breast cancer surgery may include a lumpectomy, or breast sparing surgery (remove the tumor and surrounding breast tissue), a mastectomy (remove the entire breast and a few lymph nodes under the arm), or a modified radical mastectomy (remove the breast, the majority of lymph nodes and parts of the chest muscles). You may also need breast reconstruction after breast surgery, such as artificial implants or tissue flap procedures.
We use the least invasive, nipple sparing procedures and can perform simultaneous breast reductions with wide lumpectomies. Our oncoplastic approach combines expertise in both surgical oncology and plastic surgery to give you the best results possible.
