Breast Surgery

Breast Cancer Imaging

Most women experience breast changes at some time during their lifetime. Age, pregnancy, hormone levels and medicine may cause lumps or discharges. When many of us think of breast disease, we think of breast cancer, but there are many other breast diseases and conditions that can affect a woman's breast health.

The Department of Surgery faculty who specialize in breast disease use a multidisciplinary approach with other physicians at the Breast Center to determine the optimal treatment for each patient.

Our breast specialists provide a comprehensive and caring approach to breast procedures, including preventive care, breast cancer surgery and reconstructive surgery.
