Many patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer have surgery as part of their treatment. Women from Clearwater, Florida, who elect surgery can turn to the highly skilled surgeons at Moffitt Cancer Center’s Don and Erika Wallace Comprehensive Breast Program. Located less than an hour away, we provide a full spectrum of surgical treatments (along with chemotherapy, radiation therapy, clinical trials and supportive care) in a single, easily accessible location.
At Moffitt, we have a team of surgeons who exclusively perform breast cancer surgery. As a result, our surgical oncologists are some of the most highly experienced in the Clearwater area. Patients also have access to our plastic and reconstructive surgeons, as well as our supportive care specialists.
Because Moffitt’s surgeons have performed several thousand breast cancer procedures, they are highly competent in using today’s most advanced techniques, including:
- Minimally invasive breast surgery
- Robot-assisted operations
- Nipple-sparing and tissue-conserving procedures
At Moffitt, our oncologists work hand-in-hand with each patient to determine the most appropriate approach for his or her unique needs. Because we consider not only the clinical outcome of each procedure, but also the impact that it can have on a patient’s quality of life, we’re able to develop comprehensive, individualized treatment plans that represent the best choice for each patient’s situation. And, referrals are never required to discuss potential treatment options with one of our experienced surgical oncologists.
