For most women with breast cancer, surgery is part of the treatment process. Our highly skilled surgeons have significant experience in performing surgical procedures for all types of breast cancer.
Depending on your individual preferences, our surgeons perform breast-conserving surgery (also known as a lumpectomy), as well as sentinel lymph node biopsies. Other types of breast surgery include mastectomy, double mastectomy and our surgeons work collaboratively with plastic surgeons for breast reconstructive surgery.
We recognize that breast cancer surgery is a personal decision that can often be complex and overwhelming. Your care team at the Cancer Center, including your providers (physicians and nurse practitioner), will help you understand all of your breast cancer surgery options so you and your family can decide on an individualized treatment plan that works best for you.
