Surgical Oncology: Breast


Breast Oncology Multi-disciplinary Approach

Stanford's breast cancer surgeons and researchers have been instrumental in developing new approaches for the treatment breast cancer today. From less invasive techniques for tagging biopsied lymph nodes to broadly offering nipple-sparing mastectomies and breast-conserving techniques. All surgical decisions are made in a multidisciplinary fashion with colleagues in radiology, medical oncology, plastic surgery and radiation oncology. The aim is to maximally personalize the medical decisions and recommendations.

We are poised to care for the wide spectrum of breast diseases in women and men; encompassing benign complaints, high risk surveillance and cancer. Our breast surgeons are involved in implementing cutting-edge and novel approaches for treating malignant problems extending from ductal carcinoma in-situ to locally advanced breast cancer, and availing patients of opportunities to participate in clinical trials.

“How you execute the treatment depends on numerous factors,” says Breast Surgeon Dr. Irene Wapnir. “It’s a very dynamic process involving a team of doctors from multiple divisions and departments. The best care is when it’s multidisciplinary and integrated.”
