At Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, we provide breast cancer surgery to women from Lehigh Acres, Florida. As a nationally recognized leader in innovative cancer treatment, we are a tremendous resource for patients located throughout the state who are exploring their options. Whether you have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, you have a family history of the condition or you’re being proactive and want to take advantage of our screening programs, Moffitt is here for you.
Breast cancer surgery can be performed in several different ways depending on a patient’s needs. To ensure that each patient gets the best possible treatment, our multispecialty tumor board meets weekly. This group of experts reviews each patient’s treatment plan and progress and makes adjustments as needed. If breast cancer surgery is recommended, our patients can feel confident that the proposed treatment is based on the recommendations of numerous medical oncologists, radiation therapists, surgeons, pathologists and other professionals.
Here are a few types of breast cancer surgery that we currently offer:
- Partial mastectomy
- Total mastectomy
- Radical mastectomy
- Prophylactic mastectomy
- Bilateral mastectomy
Depending on a patient’s needs, further breast cancer treatment may be required, including radiation therapy or chemotherapy. At Moffitt, all treatments are available in a single location. We also offer breast reconstruction surgery after a mastectomy, and our team specializes in a variety of nipple/areola and skin-sparing techniques.
To accommodate out-of-town patients, we have partnerships with many local hotels and our team will gladly work with your family physician to help you continue to receive the post-surgical treatment you require when you return home.
