As a woman, you have many choices to make when facing breast cancer surgery — the biggest is usually choosing between breast conservation or breast removal. New advances in both options are giving women more choices, faster treatment, smaller scars, fewer long-term side effects and better cosmetic results than ever before.
HonorHealth offers the most advanced surgical treatment for breast cancer available today. From biopsy to mastectomy, our surgeons will address your concerns about your appearance without compromising the effectiveness of your treatment. Many times, our surgeons perform breast surgeries alongside a plastic surgeon so that breast reconstruction can be performed at the same time the cancer is removed. This eliminates the need for multiple operations, which has been the standard in the past.
We offer many tissue-sparing surgical approaches to breast cancer treatment, including nipple-sparing mastectomies and oncoplastic techniques. Our treatment options include:
- Breast biopsy: Stereotactic, ultrasound, needle aspiration, core needle, excisional, sentinel lymph node
- Duct excision
- Oncoplastic surgery
- Axillary node dissection
Treatment is based on many individual factors, including the type and stage of the cancer. We'll help you understand the disease and work with you to determine which option is best. Please contact a cancer care coordinator for more information about our breast cancer surgery options at 480-323-1255 or 877-273-3639.
