Breast Surgeries Performed in Our Practice

  • Breast Surgery — Breast surgery treats benign and malignant diseases of the breast.
  • Minimally invasive biopsy — These require very small incisions to sample breast abnormalities seen on mammograms 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 a 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. It’s 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.
