Breast Cancer Surgeons

Many individuals with breast cancer have surgery as part of their treatment. Our breast cancer surgeons specialize in:

  • Lymph node biopsy. Lymphs filter harmful things, like germs, from the body. A lymph node biopsy is commonly used to check for cancer. Breast cancer surgeons take out a small lymph node tissue sample and send it to a specialist, who carefully examines it under a microscope. This helps diagnose cancer or determine if it has gone to another area. It can also look for the cause of the common symptom of swollen lymph nodes.
  • Lumpectomy. Surgery to remove cancerous breast tissue and a surrounding rim of normal tissue called the surgical margin. Breast cancer surgeons can preserve the remaining breast and breast sensation with this procedure. It may be referred to as a wide local excision, segmental resection, breast-conserving surgery, or partial mastectomy.
  • Mastectomy. Breast cancer surgeons remove the whole breast with this procedure. There are several different types of mastectomies, including simple mastectomy, skin-sparing mastectomy, nipple-sparing mastectomy, modified radical mastectomy, radical mastectomy, and double mastectomy. The procedures are usually only performed when cancer does not respond to other treatments, there are large tumors, and when breast-conserving surgery is not able to completely remove cancer.
  • Breast reconstruction. Breast reconstruction may be performed during or after a mastectomy. Breast implants and flap reconstruction, for example, are two methods to help reconstruct the breast.

Medical Oncologists

A breast cancer medical oncologist plays an important role in the treatment plan. They specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer through the use of:

  • Chemotherapy. Powerful drugs are used to kill fast-growing cancerous cells in the body. Chemotherapy drugs may be used alone or in combination with other treatment options to treat breast cancer.
  • Hormonal therapy. This type of therapy blocks estrogen and progesterone, two naturally occurring hormones, from attaching to cancer cells. Or, it may decrease the body’s production of these hormones. When these hormones cannot access cancer cells, cancer cells may die and tumor growth may slow down.
  • Biological therapy. This type of treatment uses the body's immune system to fight breast cancer. It is focused on enabling the body to recognize and kill breast cancer cells. There are several different types of biological therapy, and some may only be offered through clinical trials.
  • Targeted therapy. This type of therapy uses drugs to target specific genes and proteins involved in the growth and survival of breast cancer cells. It can decrease breast cancer tissue growth and development or it can target cells, like blood vessel cells, that cause cancer growth. Targeted therapy is often prescribed along with chemotherapy and other breast cancer treatments.

Radiation Oncologists

A radiation oncologist uses the therapeutic properties of radiation to treat and cure cancer. A radiation oncologist has the important job of determining how radiation fits into a breast cancer treatment plan.

During a radiation procedure, radiation oncologists carefully determine where the radiation will be delivered and what type of radiation to use.

External beam radiation therapy directs radiation from an external source outside the body to the breast cancer site.

Internal radiation therapy utilizes a carefully placed solid or liquid radiation source inside the body.
