Breast health services we offer
Whether you come to us for your annual mammogram or because you've found a lump in your breast, we offer supportive diagnostic and treatment services while always keeping your comfort in mind.
Mammography screenings are vital in detecting abnormalities that may lead to future health complications. They are recommended even for women who do not show any signs, symptoms or observable breast abnormalities. The goal is to detect any cancer before symptoms are noticeable. Early detection is the best tool we have in combating breast cancer and other breast health issues.
As part of our women's care programs, our mammography services follow the standards set forth by the national Mammography Standards Act (MQSA).
Who should get a mammogram?
According to the American Cancer Association:
- Women ages 40 to 44 can start annual breast cancer screening with mammograms.
- Women age 45 to 54 should get mammograms every year.
- Women 55 and older should switch to mammograms every two years or can continue yearly screening.

Advanced breast reconstruction surgery
We offer some of the most advanced microsurgical technology used in breast reconstruction. A deep inferior epigastric posterior (DIEP) flap is an innovative surgical procedure utilized to rebuild the breast lost to a mastectomy. The technique transplants excess living fat from below the belly button to the chest area to give volume and shape. This approach to breast reconstruction is gentler and preferred over older reconstruction techniques.
A breast biopsy is a procedure to remove a small sample of breast tissue for laboratory testing. The tissue is examined to identify and diagnose any abnormalities in breast cells following suspicious or concerning findings in a mammogram or ultrasound. Biopsy results determine if you need additional care or treatment.
Breast cancer care
We partner with our oncology department to deliver multidisciplinary services for breast cancer. Our providers understand the sensitive nature of a cancer diagnosis. Your care team is there for you from your first biopsy to treatment to survivorship. Some of the breast cancer treatments we offer include:
- Fine needle biopsy
- Radiation therapy
- Sentinel lymph node biopsy
Ultrasound examination, also called sonography, is an imaging method that utilizes high-frequency sound waves to produce precise images of the breast. These images provide valuable information in diagnosing and treating diseases of the breast. While mammograms are the standard of care for breast cancer screenings, ultrasounds can be combined with other services for patients who have a breast abnormality.
