Breast Care Center
Excellence in Breast Health
The Breast Care Center provides comprehensive healthcare in a welcoming and patient-centered environment. Services include consultations for benign breast conditions, diagnostic imaging, high-risk and genetic counseling services, and comprehensive treatment of breast cancer.
Our multidisciplinary team of specialists includes Brigham and Women’s breast surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists from Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, and South Shore Hospital’s radiologists and pathologists. Non-physician experts of the team include breast-certified nurse practitioners, nurses who have received specialized training in breast health, an oncology dietitian, oncology social workers, and experts in integrative therapies to help with the symptoms and side effects of cancer and some treatments. The team of experts in the Center creates specialized plans of treatment unique to each patient’s situation including the type and stage of breast disease. The goal of the team at the Breast Care Center is to be an active partner in each patient’s lifelong journey of comprehensive breast health.
Our program has earned full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), which assures that patients can expect the highest standards of care available, including access to local, regional and national clinical trials offering promising new treatment protocols.
While a referral from your primary care physician is recommended, it is not required. Our staff can assist you in obtaining a referral, if needed. We strive to treat each breast care patient with personalized attention, the best diagnosis and treatment options, and exceptional follow-up care.
