line of women of varying ages and races standing in a line, all wearing pink shirtsOur compassionate team of breast health experts in our Breast Care Center deliver state-of-the-art treatment and care for our patients with breast cancer. We offer a full spectrum of services from diagnoses to prevention, treatment, support, and survivorship of all breast cancers, including rare and complex diagnoses. When appropriate, we provide opportunities to receive emerging therapies through participation in clinical trials. We are a multidisciplinary center with an emphasis on translational research, which means the close collaboration between our clinicians and researchers enables us to move scientific discovery into clinical practice rapidly and efficiently.

Breast Cancer Services and Treatment Options

Our patients have access to our entire team of physicians, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, enabling them to take an active role in their treatment plan. 

Tattoo-less Radiotherapy

Doctors often use small, permanent tattoo marks to accurately target the patient's disease during daily treatments. Tattoo-less radiotherapy eliminates the need for those marks with Surface Guided Radiation Therapy (SGRT), which uses specialized cameras to track the patient's position in a non-invasive manner.

Additional Treatments

  • Medical, surgical, and radiation therapy
  • Our high risk assessment clinic, and genetic counseling and testing through the LIFE Center
  • Individualized treatment plans with access to a full suite of resources and services, including nurse navigation, diet and nutrition therapy, mental health counseling, financial counseling, and on-site specialty pharmacy services
  • Support groups and education classes for patients, families, and caregivers
  • Advanced treatment options and emerging therapies through clinical trials
  • Specialized care designed to meet the unique needs of patients living with cancer through the Survivorship Program
