The Breast Care Center

Breast Care Center

Receiving state-of-the-art care at one of the nation's best oncology treatment centers is reassuring for those suddenly facing the many uncertainties of cancer.

Located within our Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Breast Care Center offers a full spectrum of services to improve breast health. Services include screening and diagnostics, breast cancer treatment for both benign and malignant breast disease, and prevention and survivor programs - all delivered with the expertise, compassion and individualized service expected from an academic medical center.


Advantages include:

A Breast Imaging Center of Excellence incorporating mammography, ultrasound, MR and image-guided biopsy and staffed by experts in breast imaging.

Multidisciplinary care. We've developed a system to streamline breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of your patients. In addition, our surgical oncologists and plastic surgeons work in tandem to plan and perform breast reconstructions.

Specialists who are experts at breast cancer treatment. Our physicians, most of whom are fellowship-trained, work collaboratively to identify the most effective treatment options for each breast cancer patient.

Personalized breast cancer treatment plans. In most cases, your patient will meet with multiple physicians in a single day and leave with a treatment plan in place.

Clinical trials and basic research. By combining laboratory and clinical research, your patients receive the latest advances in breast cancer diagnosis and treatment, including: sentinel lymph-node mapping, breast-conserving surgery, immediate breast reconstruction and radiation therapy implants. Learn more about cancer clinical trials.

First in the region to be granted full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers which is administered by the American College of Surgeons. We are also an accredited Breast Imaging Center of Excellence through the American College of Radiology.

Nurse clinicians and patient navigators are on staff.

Genetic screening is offered by the Genetic Counseling Program for a variety of cancers including breast, colorectal, ovarian and melanoma.
