Breast surgery

Breast surgery requires  special consideration and attention. We treat benign and malignant conditions of the breast with equal care and expertise. We keep up to date with the latest advances and treatments available to perform aesthetically acceptable operations on the breast and at the same time aim to cure the patient of her malady, be it a benign growth or a malignant tumor.

Breast cancer is one of the most studied cancers and we know a lot about it and its treatments. We work in conjunction with a team of breast oncologists, breast radiologists, pathologists and radiation oncologists to find the best modality and treatment options for each and every patient.  We also have plastic surgeons we work with reconstruction in the event that we had to remove the breast. Our goal is to preserve the natural breast tissue without compromising cure rate and minimizing the chances of recurrence.

Breast surgery can be very serious and we take it that way.

We handle the entire process including the node sampling or removal, as it may be indicated, in a particular situation.

Most breast operations are done as outpatient and other times we admit for 24-48 hours. 

The operation is very specific to each patient and their condition so it is difficult to generalize.  We offer the full range of procedures from the more radical to the least invasive and breast conservation when it applies.

The main risks with breast surgery are the same risks of any cancer surgery which are the possibility of recurrence, scarring, need for more surgery, bleeding and infection.  We are prepared to handle any of these and be by your side the entire course. 

We are here to make sure you understand all your options and that all happens in a fast and undisturbed form.  

Call us and make an appointment.  We will be happy to help you navigate the uncertain and scary waters of breast cancer.
