It is the philosophy of the Comprehensive Breast Health Center that no woman should have to wait and worry that a symptom she is experiencing may be breast cancer. The overwhelming majority of breast-related disorders that a woman may develop will not be breast cancer, but waiting to find out can be frightening.
The GSM Center ensures that your appointment will be promptly scheduled with one of our breast specialists to reduce that time spent in uncertainty. If it is shown that you do have breast cancer,
Our multi-specialty team works with each patient to develop an individual treatment plan to ensure the most effective, thorough cancer care. We explain the benefits of every surgical option such as:
mastectomy—partial or radical with immediate reconstruction.
the removal of lymph nodes
breast conserving surgery
image-guided breast surgery
minimally invasive surgery
Our surgeons consult with each patient about her medical treatment plan and her wishes for reconstruction following treatment. There are two main options for reconstruction that help patients achieve a natural look and feel:
Implant reconstruction in which a saline or silicone-filled prosthetic form is implanted under the chest muscle to recreate the look and feel of the breast.
Tissue flap reconstruction in which a section of tissue from your abdomen, buttock, thigh or back is used to rebuild the breast.
We offer cosmetic breast surgery including breast augmentation, breast reduction and breast lift, as well as other contouring procedures, in our Cosmetic Surgery Center.
