Choosing a Breast Cancer Surgery Specialist

Surgeons play a critical role in breast cancer treatment, and choosing your breast surgeon may be one of the most important decisions you will make concerning your care. Since breast cancer treatment frequently begins with surgery, surgical outcomes pave the way for the treatment to follow. That’s why it is extremely important to choose a highly qualified and experienced surgeon who specializes in breast cancer surgery.

Many surgeons occasionally operate on breast cancer, typically handling only a few cases a year. However, when it comes to breast cancer surgery, practice makes perfect. Research shows that patients who have surgeries done by physicians who perform a high volume of breast cancer surgeries have a better prognosis than patients of lower volume surgeons.

Surgeons who specialize in breast cancer have dedicated their professional careers to the disease, performing hundreds of breast cancer surgeries every year. With years of rigorous training and education focused on breast disease, they have an in-depth knowledge of cancer biology, genetics and the most advanced surgical options to help patients achieve the best possible results.
