Advanced Treatment Options

Working as a team, The Breast Center's caring experts utilize the most advanced therapies available to treat breast cancer and to preserve healthy breast tissue.

These treatments include:

  • Lumpectomy
  • Mastectomy, traditional and Nipple-Areola sparing surgery
  • Oncoplastic Surgery, which preserves the breast’s appearance by reshaping breast tissue during cancer surgery
  • Sentinel Lymph Node Dissection, which often eliminates the need to remove deeper lymph nodes
  • Hormone therapy, which can be used in many aspects of breast cancer treatment, including: initial risk reduction, minimizing the cancer’s risk of recurrence, and preventing the cancer from spreading to other areas of the body
  • MarginProbe Margin Analysis, which enables surgeons to optimize the removal of cancer during breast conservation surgery or lumpectomies
  • Axillary reverse lymphatic mapping (ARM), which preserves the lymphatic drainage of the arm during surgery, decreasing the risk of developing lymphedema
  • Intraoperative Digital Specimen x-ray (Bioptics machine), shows surgeons images of the tissue removed in less than a minute, which enables them to remove all of the cancer in just one operation
  • Genomic Testing
  • Chemotherapy, including the only dedicated, inpatient oncology unit in the region
  • External Beam Radiation Therapy, used after lumpectomy
  • Partial breast radiation delivered by an implanted device, which delivers radiation to the tumor site from inside the breast through a small catheter, rather than from an external beam
  • Survivorship Training available before, during, and after treatment in effort to assist in getting cancer patients and survivors back to their daily routines
  • Specialized oncology rehabilitation services
