A lumpectomy, which involves the surgical removal of a breast tumor along with a small rim of noncancerous tissue, may be recommended for the treatment of breast cancer. Women in Kissimmee, Florida, who need this procedure are encouraged to take advantage of the world-class treatment available at Moffitt Cancer Center, located just a short drive away in Tampa. Moffitt is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida, a distinction that recognizes our dedication to developing effective approaches to treatment as well as our commitment to gaining ground in the fight against cancer. Due to technological advances in surgery, some previously inoperable tumors can now be surgically removed, allowing our patients to experience a better quality of life. In fact, Moffitt is continually at the forefront of implementing new and better techniques to give our patients the best treatment options possible.
At Moffitt, we understand the many challenges that a patient can face when dealing with breast cancer. For the convenience of patients who travel to Moffitt from Kissimmee and elsewhere for lumpectomy and other breast cancer treatments, we can assist with the logistics. For example:
- We’ve partnered with several nearby hotels that meet or exceed our stringent infection control and hygiene standards, so our patients can trust they will have a safe and comfortable place to stay before and after their lumpectomy procedures.
- Our partner hotels offer our patients and their families discounted rates to ease some of the financial burdens of being away from home.
- The Don & Erika Wallace Comprehensive Breast Program provides all diagnostic and treatment services in a single location, so patients from Kissimmee, FL, won’t have to worry about traveling to multiple facilities in an unfamiliar city.
Moffitt welcomes all patients, whether or not they come to us with referrals. However, if a patient is referred to us by a physician, we will work closely with the referring physician throughout the patient’s treatment.
