Our experienced surgeons, in collaboration with the Smith Breast Center, a major component of the Dan L Duncan Comprehensive Cancer Center at Baylor College of Medicine, offer advanced surgical oncology options for breast cancer patients, including nipple-areolar sparing mastectomies and breast conservation surgery.
- Breast Conservation Surgery (Lumpectomy)
The surgery to remove breast cancer along with some surrounding tissue from the breast. The sample is sent to a pathologist who examines it and makes sure all of the cancer has been removed.
- Ductal Carcinoma In Situ (DCIS) Treatment
An early form of cancer confined to the lactiferous (milk producing) ducts of the breast.
The surgery to remove the entire breast to treat breast cancer.
- Nipple and Skin Sparing Mastectomy
A type of mastectomy where the breast tissue is removed, while all of the skin, nipple and areola are left intact.
- Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy
The removal of lymph nodes in the armpit to see if cancer has spread to the lymph nodes.
