Wright State Physicians Breast Surgery team is trained and focused on helping women with breast cancer that require some type of surgery as a part of their treatment.
Breast Surgery may be recommended for –
- Removal of as much of a cancer as possible (breast-conserving surgery or mastectomy)
- Exploring whether a cancer has spread to lymph nodes (sentinel lymph node biopsy or axillary lymph node dissection)
- Restoration of breast shape after cancer removal (breast reconstruction)
- Relief of breast cancer symptoms
