    • Breast-Conserving Surgery, also called a lumpectomy or partial mastectomy, is an option for women with ductal carcinoma in situ and early invasive cancer. This surgery is usually followed by radiation therapy. During breast-conserving surgery, our surgeons remove the cancer along with a border of healthy tissue to ensure no cancer cells remain. Our surgeons plan treatment with the goal of leaving as much of the breast intact as possible.
    • Doctors can evaluate the tissue margins at the time of surgery with a device called a MarginProbe. This consists of a probe that uses electromagnetic waves to examine the surface of the tumor after it is removed and a console that analyzes the probe’s measurements. This information helps doctors determine if the tissue margin contains cancer cells. If cancer cells are present, more surgery may be needed.
      • MarginProbe® was up to three times more effective in finding additional cancer on the margins of tumorous tissue as traditional methods, such as inspecting and imaging the tissue.  This leds to a significant decrease in re-excision surgery

The Resource Library at The Center for Breast Health

An important part of coping with and understanding breast cancer is education. Our Resource Library, located in The Center for Breast Health, has both digital and printed resources about breast cancer management, treatment and survivorship. The next time you’re in, please stop by!

Lymphedema Therapy

Lymphedema is an abnormal buildup of bodily fluid that causes tissue to swell. It is typically caused by damage to the body’s lymphatic system, resulting from cancer treatment.

If you have lymphedema, a physical therapist is an important part of your medical team. He or she can perform Complete Decongestive Therapy to help you.

Complete Decongestive Therapy is the gold standard for treating lymphedema. It is both non-invasive and gentle, relying on manual lymph drainage, compression bandaging, remedial exercises, patient education, and skin care.
