Diagnostic & Treatment Services

Our experienced team specializes in the evaluation and treatment of all types of breast conditions, cancers and concerns, including:

  • benign and malignant breast tumors

  • breast pain

  • nipple discharge

  • suspicious and abnormal mammograms

  • second opinion consultations (medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology)

  • patients with a previous breast cancer or positive biopsy

  • patients at high risk for breast cancer with and without BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutations

Our comprehensive Breast Care Services include:

  • Imaging
    • All-digital Mammography
    • 3D Mammography (tomosynthesis), which helps doctors spot small cancers and make more accurate diagnoses
    • Breast MRI with state-of-the-art 1.5T and 3T magnets
    • Contrast-enhanced Mammography as an alternative for patients who cannot have an MRI
    • Minimally Invasive Biopsy techniques
  • Surgical Oncology

    • Breast Conservation Surgery, including lumpectomy
    • Oncoplastic Surgery – Allows larger tumors to be removed through lumpectomy while preserving the shape of the breast
    • Nipple-sparing and Skin-sparing Mastectomy – Involves removing the breast tissue while leaving the skin and nipple intact
    • Reverse Lymphatic Mapping – Allows the surgeon to avoid removing lymph nodes that drain into the arm, thereby reducing lymphedema risk
    • Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy – Involves the removal of select lymph nodes that drain the breast to assess for cancer spread
  • Medical Oncology

    • Chemotherapy prescribed by board-certified, breast cancer-specialized medical oncologists and administered by oncology certified nurses in a state-of-the-art infusion center
    • Endocrine therapy, sometimes used with other targeted non-chemotherapy drugs, to treat estrogen-positive cancers
    • Targeted therapy for HER2 positive breast cancer, including anticancer drugs given by IV or mouth in combination with chemotherapy or endocrine therapy
    • Genomic testing of tumor tissue and blood samples to reveal the treatment thought to best target the cancer
  • Radiation Oncology

    • Partial Breast Radiation with SAVI (Strut Assisted Volume Implant) – Targets only the area where the tumor was removed and involves 10 treatments over just one week. For some patients, it can be an alternative to a lengthier treatment course of external radiation to the whole breast.
    • AlignRT/VisionRT
    • Proton Therapy
    • Thermal Therapy (Hyperthermia)
  • Reconstructive Surgery
    • DIEP Flap (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Flap) Surgery – Offered mainly in high volume academic medical centers like the University of Maryland Medical Center, DIEP flap surgery uses tissues from a woman’s own body to create a breast
    • Latissimus Dorsi Flap – Uses muscle and skin from the upper back
    • Implant-based Reconstruction – Uses a silicone or saline implant or a temporary tissue expander to reconstruct a breast mound
