When preparing for a bilateral mastectomy, women from Ft. Myers and Naples, Florida, can turn to Moffitt Cancer Center for exceptional care. Located just a short drive away in Tampa, our National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center is a nationwide leader in breast cancer care, chosen by thousands of patients every year for our individualized service and exceptional outcomes. Plus, referrals are not necessary to meet with our breast cancer specialists.
Our bilateral mastectomy surgeons are among the most experienced in the field. Because our high-volume center performs these procedures on a regular basis, our surgeons understand the most effective ways to remove both breasts while obtaining the best possible cosmetic outcomes. Supported by a staff of plastic surgeons, reconstructive specialists, anesthesiologists and other care workers, our team provides each woman with the comprehensive, compassionate breast cancer care she deserves.
We understand that no two patients are the same; that’s why we offer a number of innovative approaches to breast cancer surgery. For instance, when a patient comes to Moffitt for a bilateral mastectomy, our surgeons may recommend:
- A minimally invasive procedure
- A robotic mastectomy
- A nipple- or areola-sparing procedure
- A breast reconstruction after the mastectomy itself
After taking each patient’s personal factors into account, our team creates a tailored treatment plan that’s designed to achieve optimal outcomes, along with the best possible quality of life. If additional therapies, such as chemotherapy or radiation therapy, are necessary in addition to a woman’s bilateral mastectomy, these treatments can be provided at the same location for a convenient, streamlined experience.
And, if you’re traveling from Ft. Myers or Naples to Moffitt for your bilateral mastectomy, we can help you make the journey easier. We have partnered with several local hotels that offer extended stays and discounted rates, and also meet the high hygiene and safety standards that we have set forth to ensure the well-being of our patients.
