Breast Center

  • Comprehensive Cancer Care Under One Roof
  • Multidisciplinary Approach
  • Personalized Cancer Treatment Plan

 Our dedicated team of compassionate professionals is focused on helping women of all ages lead long, healthy lives. With a wide range of support, the latest technology and up-to-date training on the newest innovations in treatment, we are on the cutting edge of improvements in breast care. Patients with either benign or malignant breast disease are evaluated by our fellowship-trained breast surgeons with significant experience in a wide array of treatment options. Breast cancer patients benefit from a multi-disciplinary team approach to care encompassing expertise in surgical, medical, and radiation oncology as well as breast imaging. Weekly breast cancer conferences provide a forum for physicians to identify optimal treatment pathways for individual patients.

Our center also incorporates a number of additional patient services including genetic counseling for evaluation and management of high risk individuals; a dedicated breast imaging department for mammography, ultrasound, MRI, and minimally invasive interventional procedures; physical/occupational therapy for post-operative rehabilitation; La Boutique for lifestyle enhancement after therapy; an Infusion Therapy Center staffed by Oncology Nursing Society (OCN) certified nurses; and psychosocial services including survivor support groups. 

Treatment at the Dyson Center for Cancer Care is founded upon the highest standards of evidence-based medicine and incorporates practice guidelines from the American Cancer Society, the National Cancer Institute, and the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.  In order to constantly improve the high level of care provided for patients, our physicians actively participate in clinical research trials sponsored by the major cooperative groups in North America.  Our facility combines a highly trained group of healthcare professionals with comprehensive services for diagnosis and treatment to function as a center of excellence in breast care for our patients.  At the Dyson Center for Cancer Care we make a commitment to stand with you in the fight against your disease.
