Unique Team Approach
Our team of experts works together with you to create the most effective treatment plan—giving you a full perspective, plan and timeline. When you come to the Saint Agnes Breast Center, you will gain access to:
- Breast surgeons (All members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons)
- Plastic surgeons
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Nurse navigators
- Oncology Social worker
- American Cancer Society Navigator
Once diagnosed, you will transition from the Breast Center to the Breast Team at the Saint Agnes Cancer Institute, where you’ll receive the best care possible in a comforting, healing environment. We understand a diagnosis of breast cancer is overwhelming so our Team works tirelessly to provide one-on-one time with you, answering questions and talking through your specific options.
Following a diagnosis of breast cancer, the surgeons on our Breast Center team refer their patients for a team consult. Unlike other area hospitals, in that first team consult you will spend time one-on-one with each of your specialists. Your Specialists will then meet as a complete team, putting their ideas together to develop the best and most complete plan for you. As a board of experts, they share ideas, strategies and results, so you get second and third opinions from the start. Within 24 hours, your surgeon will receive a full treatment plan and timeline you can trust and will follow up with you to discuss.
