As the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center based in Florida, Moffitt Cancer Center takes a comprehensive, multispecialty approach to treatment in order to help our patients live the healthiest and most productive lives possible. Our cancer experts provide all aspects of patient care, including prevention, diagnosis, treatment, support and clinical trials, in a single, convenient location, and we welcome patients with and without referrals.
At Moffitt, each individual case receives a thorough review by a tumor board of cancer specialists who make highly individualized, evidence-based recommendations. As a result, a patient’s breast cancer surgery treatment plan might include:
- Sentinel node mapping and biopsy
- Axillary node dissection
- Mastectomy (partial, total, bilateral or prophylactic)
- Breast reconstruction
The goal of any type of breast cancer surgery is the removal of tumors and affected lymph nodes. To accomplish this, the experienced, fellowship-trained surgeons at Moffitt are skilled in a variety of minimally invasive techniques, such as skin-sparing and nipple-sparing procedures, which can be very effective for certain patients.
