The Breast Care Center's multidisciplinary team meets every week to discuss all new breast cancer cases. A treatment plan is specifically designed for each patient's individual needs. We offer medical oncology and radiation oncology consults when a patient's treatment plan requires oncology treatment. We partner with several physicians to provide radiation oncology treatment for our patients to offer the most advanced treatment in the state.
The Breast Care Center oncology services include:
All of our breast surgeons are board-certified by the American Board of Surgery and are members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.
The Breast Care Center at Lovelace Women's Hospital has technologically advanced diagnostic imaging and radiology services. We offer state-of-the-art technology for screening and evaluation of breast cancer, including digital mammography for faster, more accurate exams and diagnostic breast MRI for patients at high risk for breast cancer and those requiring more definitive breast imaging.
The High Risk Breast Cancer Program combines the latest medical and scientific knowledge with the most advanced surveillance and diagnostic methods. Women and their family members concerned about breast cancer can undergo an evaluation by our comprehensive Breast Care Center team.
Our team includes a Breast Care Navigator whose main goal is to be a resource to you through every step of your care to help give you peace of mind. The breast care navigator is available to all breast cancer patients and their families to serve as a consistent care coordinator, a support person, a facilitator of available community resources, a health educator and as a personal advocate.
