Mercy Clinic Breast Surgery Center recently opened to serve those diagnosed with or at high risk for breast cancer. The medical experts at the clinic focus on the patient’s complete needs throughout treatment and into survivorship, all in one dedicated clinic location.
Their services include treatment for non-cancerous breast disease, surgical treatment for breast cancer for both men and women, high risk breast cancer management, and ongoing survivorship and surveillance following breast cancer treatment.
For women diagnosed with cancer undergoing surgical treatment, Mercy now offers SAVI SCOUT®. It’s a small reflector, the size of a grain of rice, that a radiologist implants in a woman’s breast to mark the exact spot of the tumor. Later, the surgeon uses the SCOUT guide, which emits infrared light and a radar signal, to detect the reflector and remove the lump.
Dr. John Bumberry along with Catherine York, APRN, and team are providing care in the new space dedicated to breast cancer treatment and survivorship. Women seeking second opinions for breast problems may also contact the medical experts at the clinic.
