A diagnosis of breast cancer can have an immense impact on the physical, psychological and emotional well-being of you and your family.
At Rochester Regional Health, no one is alone. Our team of physicians and specialists are committed to seeking out the latest technologies and treatments to help you overcome obstacles and look toward what’s next.
Our Breast Care Center was the first in Western NYS to offer one of the most life-changing breakthroughs in breast cancer surgery—a technique called Hidden Scar® Surgery.
This technique is an advanced approach in which surgeons remove cancerous tissue through a single incision made in an inconspicuous area, minimizing visible scarring and preserving the shape and appearance of both the breast and the nipple.
This life-changing technique can:
Hidden Scar Lumpectomy
Hidden Scar Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy
Hidden Scar Lumpectomy: the size of the tumor will allow for its complete removal with some margin of normal tissue all the way around.
Hidden Scar Nipple Sparing Mastectomy Surgery: no cancerous tissue is found in the nipple. Additionally, a Hidden Scar Nipple Sparing Mastectomy is a safe approach that can be used in women with a family history of breast cancer opting for risk-reducing surgery.
For more information on Hidden Scar Lumpectomy or Mastectomy Surgery please visit breastcancersurgery.com“This surgery option provides women with a level of confidence in survivorship that wasn’t attainable with previous surgery methods.”
