Breast Cancer Treatment

From advanced diagnostics to state-of-the-art treatment to support and survivorship, our renowned breast cancer experts provide a complete spectrum of care. Our patients have access to a full range of leading-edge treatments including radiation, chemotherapy, hormonal treatments, and targeted therapies that block a tumor’s growth and progression. We also participate in clinical trials that might benefit our patients. Our program is known for its exceptional outcomes and compassionate, collaborative approach. As soon as we see something suspicions, we set the patient up with a specially trained nurse navigator to answer questions, explain procedures and provide support and understanding. 

Breast Health Center

Our Breast Health Center offers a comprehensive range of diagnostic techniques, including digital mammography, breast ultrasound, breast MRI and more. Our early detection rates are excellent. We screen all women who come in for a mammogram for elevated breast cancer risk. When a woman is determined to be at risk, we counsel her and enroll her in our ongoing, personalized surveillance plan, including genetic testing, additional screenings and suggested diet and lifestyle changes.

Female Pelvic Disorders

One in four adult women, and 50% of women over 50 have a pelvic issue of some kind. We treat all female pelvic conditions, including prolapse, incontinence and pelvic pain. Our urogynecological surgeons (specialists in Female Pelvic Medicine) have a broad range of expertise in open surgery and minimally invasive procedures. We even offer robotic hysterectomies, which are less invasive than the traditional procedure.

Pregnancy and Childbirth

Our well equipped Family Birth Center provides laboring moms with nurturing, family-centered care. We partner with local obstetricians and midwives so that our patients have the opportunity to choose the kind of labor and delivery care they want, with around-the-clock support services such as anesthesia, pediatrics, specialized nursing care, and advanced perinatology. We strive to offer every woman a birth experience that fits individual, cultural, and philosophical preferences while providing the highest level of care.
