Breast Multidisciplinary Clinic

At Summa Health, we know a breast cancer diagnosis can be frightening, perhaps even overwhelming. Your diagnosis may involve multiple specialists and treatment choices. Your options may include procedures that are not familiar to you, such as partial mastectomy/lumpectomy or nipple or skin sparing mastectomy with immediate/delayed reconstruction. Treatment also may include chemotherapy, radiation therapy or targeted therapies.

How do you know what is the best choice for you?

The Summa Health Breast Multidisciplinary Clinic team of cancer experts will design a coordinated, comprehensive and personalized plan of care for you using nationally recognized best practice guidelines.
