Women in Cape Coral, FL, who are seeking a partial mastectomy for breast cancer treatment can consider Moffitt Cancer Center. Located just a short drive away in Tampa, Moffitt helps thousands of patients improve their quality of life through innovative procedures, including partial mastectomy surgeries. In fact, each year we treat approximately 1,000 newly diagnosed breast cancer patients, as well as hundreds more who elect Moffitt to help them through recurrence. Our research efforts are recognized by the National Cancer Institute and have earned us the prestigious designation of Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only one based in Florida – which acknowledges our dedication to developing effective approaches to cancer treatment.
A partial mastectomy is the surgical removal of the portion of a breast where a tumor has been diagnosed, as well as an additional rim of noncancerous tissue surrounding the tumor and some lymph nodes. At Moffitt, our surgical team thoroughly explains the nature of each patient’s condition and addresses any questions prior to surgery. Additionally, cancer patients across the nation trust Moffitt with their cancer treatment for many other reasons, including:
- Our high-volume center – Our surgeons perform more surgeries in their respective areas of expertise than the surgeons at many other cancer centers, increasing their skill level with each procedure and leading to more favorable results.
- Our innovative techniques – Our surgeons specialize in a variety of minimally invasive and robotic procedures, some of which are nipple- and areola-sparing, to help ensure that a partial mastectomy has a positive cosmetic outcome.
- Our robust clinical trial program – Through our clinical trials, many of our patients are among the first to benefit from promising new partial mastectomy procedures, as well as other treatment options.
