Overview

Breast cancer is one of the most common cancers among women, but the care the experts at Saint Clare’s deliver to those with breast cancer is anything but ordinary. We provide women facing a breast cancer diagnosis the most comprehensive and state-of-the-art advances in cancer care – but our work doesn’t end there. We also deliver personalized guidance and emotional support to ensure we treat the entire patient, not just the disease.

Our Team

Our team of breast cancer specialists, which includes pathologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists and support professionals is constantly growing. Saint Clare’s oncology staff pools their knowledge and expertise in regular breast tumor board meetings where they discuss the latest treatment protocols and consult on difficult cases. While our doctors work together to devise personalized treatment plans, a dedicated oncology nurse navigator is available every step of the way to provide patients and their families with the critical emotional and educational resources they may need.

Our Approach

Screening and Diagnosis: Saint Clare’s offers a full spectrum of breast cancer screening and diagnostic services designed to detect cancer at its earliest, most treatable stages. Saint Clare's provides a fully accredited mammography program. Licensed technologists perform low-dose traditional mammograms, digital mammography, and diagnostic ultrasounds. All results are read by board-certified radiologists, with experience and special training in interpreting mammograms and breast ultrasounds. Ultrasound-guided and stereotactic breast biopsy is available for suspicious lumps.

Treatment: Saint Clare’s cancer care team works with each patient to help them navigate diagnosis, treatment, and after care. An individualized course of treatment may entail one or more of the following: chemotherapy, hormonal therapy, radiation therapy, breast surgery (including reconstructive surgery), and complementary healing therapies.

Health and Wellbeing: In addition to traditional medicine, Saint Clare’s offers nutritional counseling, genetic counseling, community outreach and education programs, and other programs to help cancer patients and their families cope with the physical, emotional, and psychological challenges posed by breast cancer. More information about these programs can be found on our Support Groups and Supportive Services pages.
