Dr. Manord discusses successful treatment with a patient.Surgery is usually the first line of attack against breast cancer. Dr. Manord offers the latest procedures for diagnosis and treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the breast.

Breast Surgery (Benign and malignant disease of the breast)

  • Minimally invasive biopsy (These require very small incisions to sample breast abnormalities seen on mammogram or ultrasounds to determine if there is a cancer present.)

Breast Cancer Surgery

  • Nipple sparing mastectomy (Removes all breast tissue except the nipple and skin which allows for better cosmetic result.)
  • Lumpectomy  (This procedure is used to remove only the portion of the breast which contains cancer. It usually requires radiation after the surgery.)
  • Mastectomy  (This removes all breast tissue and the nipple. Frequently done in conjunction with a Plastic surgeon for immediate reconstruction.)
  • Sentinel Node biopsy  (This procedure samples the lymph nodes in the axilla on the side of a breast cancer but spares most of the nodes to minimize arm swelling.)
