Breast Cancer Treatments

Breast cancer treatment has advanced rapidly in the past 10 years. Today’s breast cancer treatments let you continue your normal daily activities with less interruption for treatments and less discomfort from side effects. Your breast cancer treatment at Memorial’s Breast Cancer Center may include:

  • Chemotherapy – Memorial Cancer Institute is on your side with chemotherapy treatment, including access to some of the newest and most innovative chemo treatments through clinical trials
  • Biologicals – Newer medications, often combined with chemotherapy, that can sometimes be taken orally and have few side effects
  • Surgery – An innovative surgical guidance system, SAVI SCOUT®, helps our surgeons more accurately pinpoint lesions prior to and during surgery. Our expert breast surgical management team includes plastic and reconstructive surgeons
  • Radiation – Several effective types, including breast brachytherapy (a type of accelerated partial-breast irradiation (APBI))

Breast Cancer Patient and Family Support

A breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming to you and your family. At Memorial Cancer Institute, our commitment to patient- and family-centered care means we take care of all of you, not just your cancer.

I’ve seen so many angels through this journey. I can’t say enough good things about them. If I had to, I’d drive three hours to come to Memorial.
