Breast cancer affects nearly 180,000 American women each year. But with education and screenings, we can detect breast cancer early, when it is most treatable. And, if needed, we offer some of the newest and most advanced treatments now available.

Getting a Yearly Mammogram
The risk of breast cancer increases sharply with age. You can increase your chances for early detection of breast cancer by adhering to "the five commandments" of good breast health:
A mammogram is a safe, low-dose x-ray that can detect irregularities in the breast, sometimes even before you or your doctor can feel a lump. In our newly renovated mammography center, you'll benefit from sophisticated mammography systems that improve your comfort, require less time and, most of all, enhance image quality to aid in the early detection of breast cancer.

Advanced Stereotactic Capabilities
If your mammogram detects an abnormality, we can conduct a biopsy, which is where a small tissue sample is taken to determine if cancer is present. Though the majority of biopsies find no cancer, this minimally invasive procedure is the best way to be sure. Using advanced targeting and guidance technology, this procedure can be performed with pinpoint accuracy. It requires only a small incision and local anesthesia.
