Tests & Treatments

  • Biopsy
    A biopsy is a procedure performed to remove tissue or cells from the body for examination under a microscope.

  • Lumpectomy
    Unlike a mastectomy, which removes the entire breast, a lumpectomy entails the removal of cancerous tissue while sparing the rest of breast.

  • Mastectomy
    If it is determined that breast conservation is not an option or if you choose a mastectomy for treatment of breast cancer, our skilled plastic surgeons may be able to provide immediate breast reconstruction.
