Breast cancer surgeries
Our top breast cancer surgeons skillfully perform a range of breast cancer surgery techniques.
Breast conservation therapy (lumpectomy)
Breast conservation therapy removes a tumor from the breast, whereas a mastectomy removes the entire breast. Women who have breast conservation therapy are usually recommended to receive radiation therapy after surgery to help prevent recurrence, and to allow the patient to keep her breast.
Sentinel lymph node biopsy
Axillary sentinel lymph node surgery involves the removal of the lymph nodes under the arm where breast cancer cells may have spread. This surgery helps to evaluate the severity of the cancer and determines whether chemotherapy or radiation therapy is required.
