Patient-centered care. The Breast Care Center at Lovelace Women’s Hospital is here for you every step of the way – from digital mammography and diagnostic testing to treatment and aftercare of cancer and non cancer-related breast health issues. We are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers  for providing the highest level of quality breast care to our patients.

Our multidisciplinary breast care team is a group of accomplished physicians and health care professionals that meet weekly to discuss, in confidence, every patient with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer. This approach ensures that the best treatment options are offered to each patient.

Our multidisciplinary team includes:

  • Radiation oncologist
  • Medical oncologist
  • Radiologist
  • Pathology
  • Lymphedema specialist
  • Surgeon
  • Plastic Surgeon
  • Physician assistant
  • Certified breast care navigator
  • Nutritionist

Our experienced breast care support specialists will guide you through mammograms, clinical exams and treatments, and we will teach you the proper method for breast self-exams – so that you are part of the team that is monitoring your ongoing breast health. We also offer patient navigation, education, community resources, and psychosocial and emotional support programs.
