Treatments

 

Breast cancer is the most common malignancy in women. Primary treatment of early breast cancer is surgical intervention. Improvement in technology and increase access has allowed for the earlier detection of breast cancer such as small node-negative invasive cancers and noninvasive ductile carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The detection of breast cancer at earlier stage has been shown to increase the rate of cure and decrease mortality.

If your breast cancer is diagnosed early, there is a good chance of survival. Our comprehensive team of physicians, nurses and staff are devoted exclusively to the treatment of breast cancer and use the latest treatments and newest medications to treat and manage your disease.

Our physicians also offer cancer patients participation in clinical research trials through a variety of national research organizations. Each trial is designed to answer specific scientific questions and to find new and better ways to help people with cancer. Eligibility criteria determine if a patient is appropriate for a particular clinical trial. New trials continually become available.
