Breast Surgical Oncology
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. Our aim is to personalize all medical decisions and recommendations for each individual.
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 experienced in the latest treatments for malignant problems extending from ductal carcinoma in-situ (DCIS aka Stage 0 or non-invasive breast cancer) to locally advanced breast cancer. We also offer a number of clinical trials testing cutting-edge advancements in care.
“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.”
