The decision to undergo breast cancer surgery in Phoenix is a highly personal choice for every patient. Should you decide to have breast cancer surgery, our experienced Breast Team at Regency will inform you about all of your options, and will create a treatment plan designed just for you.  

Breast cancer treatment from Regency

Our top breast cancer surgeons at Regency offer a variety of advanced surgical techniques for those seeking breast cancer surgery and treatment in Phoenix, Buckeye, Surprise, and the nearby areas. We fully understand that breast cancer can be the most stressful experience of a person’s life, and because of this, we strive to begin every patient on their path to a cure within one week of the visit.

Breast cancer and getting a second opinion

If you’re looking for a breast cancer second opinion, our team will be more than happy to meet with you. In fact, we highly recommend getting a breast cancer second opinion before undergoing any treatment, as a study showed that more than 40% of the people in the study who asked for a second opinion had a change in diagnosis (breastcancer.org).

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.

Mastectomy

A mastectomy removes all of the breast tissue. It is typically done if breast conservation therapy is not an option, or if the patient has cancer in multiple areas of the breast and/or large tumors. There are multiple kinds of mastectomy, including:

  • Nipple-sparing mastectomy (the breast tissue is removed)
  • Skin-sparing mastectomy (the breast tissue, the nipple, and areola are removed)
  • Modified radical mastectomy (the whole breast and the lymph nodes under the arm are removed)
  • Total/simple mastectomy (the breast tissue and skin are removed)

Knowledge is power

Our Breast Team at Regency is dedicated to educating breast cancer patients not only on their options, but on what to expect throughout the pre- and post-treatment journey. From the smallest details to the biggest, we encourage our patients to voice questions, concerns, fears, and struggles so that we can help in any way that we can. We will take you step-by-step through what to expect and how to navigate your path.
