Physicians who specialize in breast cancer screening and treatment are leaders in their field, with access to the most advanced diagnostic equipment and capabilities. Of course, regular clinical breast exams and mammograms as directed by your doctor are your first line of defense against breast cancer. But when a lump or suspicious lesion is detected by one of these tests, the next step is usually a diagnostic mammogram, which provides a more detailed picture of the breast and can detect both very small tumors and precancerous conditions. Other screening methods may include ultrasonography as well as various breast biopsies including stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies. Many times, such advanced diagnostics help rule out cancer, as benign conditions of the breast are very common. But when surgical treatment is deemed necessary, our physicians have unsurpassed experience in procedures ranging from lumpectomy and mastectomy to breast reconstruction and breast-sparing surgery.
