How We Treat Breast Cancer
Your case is unique, which means your treatment plan will be designed around your needs. Every week, a team of specialists meets to discuss breast cancer cases and collaborate on the best treatment for each patient. You benefit from the combined expertise of specialists in radiology, surgery, pathology, pharmacology, oncology and therapists in fields like physical therapy and psychology.
Your recommended treatment will be based on best practices that have worked for other patients, specific aspects of your cancer/tumor, the results of all your tests, the stage of your cancer and your personal preferences.
Breast cancer is typically treated through a combination of treatments, such as radiation therapy, infusion, chemotherapy or other specialized therapies. Surgery (lumpectomy or mastectomy) is often done to remove the tumor. Some breast cancer patients may qualify for clinical trials.
