You may never need more than a mammogram from us. But should you ever have an abnormal screening, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that you are in the right place with the right people—a compassionate team of professionals who will collaborate on the most effective diagnostic procedures and treatment for you.
Our Center offers stereotactic needle biopsy: a low-radiation, outpatient procedure that is an important new tool in the fight against breast cancer. It is used to determine if breast abnormalities found on a mammogram are cancerous or benign. Compared to surgery, stereotactic needle biopsy is quicker and less painful, has fewer complications and minimal recovery time, and only requires local anesthesia. Since most women with an abnormal mammogram do not have breast cancer, stereotactic needle biopsy can spare you the discomfort and scarring associated with a surgical biopsy.
