Women from Kissimmee, Florida, who have elected a partial mastectomy for the treatment of breast cancer are encouraged to travel to Moffitt Cancer Center, located just a short drive away in Tampa. A partial mastectomy is the surgical removal of a breast tumor, along with a rim of noncancerous tissue and possibly some lymph nodes. As with any other cancer procedure, it is a surgeon’s expertise that can make the difference in a patient’s quality of life after a partial mastectomy. At Moffitt, we offer a level of surgical expertise that far exceeds that of other providers. This consistently leads to highly successful partial mastectomy outcomes as well as patient satisfaction rankings that exceed 95 percent.
At Moffitt, we take a multispecialty approach to cancer treatment and every patient’s case is initially reviewed by our tumor board. This talented group of medical professionals also meets weekly to monitor and refine each patient’s treatment plan as needed. Our tumor board consists of:
- Plastic surgeons
- Reproductive endocrinologists
- Social workers
- Other supportive care providers
Our individualized approach also ensures that our patients receive the benefit of several expert opinions without the need for referrals. Of course, if a patient is referred by a physician, we will work with their referring physician before and after surgery, as well as throughout the course of treatment.
For the convenience of our patients who are traveling from Kissimmee and elsewhere, we’ve partnered with several local hotels that offer discounted rates. These hotels also meet our stringent infection control and hygiene standards, and their management is committed to providing enhanced safety and comfort to our patients, including those who have just had partial mastectomy surgery.
