Personalized Cancer

Compassionate care

We understand the stress and anxiety surrounding concern regarding breast cancer and make every effort to explain findings and as comprehensively and quickly as possible.

Emphasis on medical evidence

Our surgical approach to breast cancer is to make csreening, diagnosis, and treatment recommendations based on current and medical evidence.  Recommendations are based on known results and current national guidelines.  We know that knowledge erases fear and patients are given options for care and the information needed to make meaningful treatment decisions.

Coordinated cancer care

Our surgeons communicate directly with primary physicians, radiologists, medical oncologists, plastic surgeons and radiation concologists to coordinate the best approach for each patient.  Each patient has a team of physicians and support staff to smoothly navigate the process of diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.  Upon completion of treatment our survivorship program ensures the patient has a comprehensive summary of treatment and plan for future follow-up.

Resources for emotional and practical support

Commitment to the community

Mountainside Medical Center offers community events to spread our knowledge regarding the treatment of breast cancer.  We also offers screening mammograms in as a reminder that early detection is the most successful way to improve breast cancer survival.

Commitment to the future

Our breast surgical practice is committed to continuing our involvement in the development of a test to predict the presence of bresat cancer based on breath analysis.  The Breathbag study, introduced to Mountainside Medical Center by the late Dr. Jan Huston with the technology of Mensanna Researchm Inc., will continue into its next phase - a National Instutes of Health funded study to collect and analyze the breath of patients having mammogram screening.  We believe one day this type of test will be used ot enhance the use of screening mammograms.  Come for screening and donate your breath to the fight against breast cancer and the hope for survival for all!
