Breast Surgery & Breast Care

Hartford HealthCare Medical Group is a leader in breast care and the treatment of breast disease. Patients have access to education and other resources, support and specialists from a multidisciplinary team of experts.

iStock_41416998_LARGEPatients and their families are considered part of the team, which includes primary care and OB GYN physicians, breast and oncologic surgeons, radiologists and radiation oncologists, pathologists and plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

It should be noted that while breast cancer most often strikes women, men can also develop the disease.

The medical staff has extensive breast care experience, beyond surgical treatment which includes, breast wellness, cancer screening, the treatment of high-risk breast disease, and genetic counseling and testing. The medical staff is not only a care provider; they are also the patient's liaison with the many disciplines involved in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and post-surgical treatment.

The division's facilities are state-of-the-art and offer on-site services including fine-needle aspiration, and core biopsy; many of the offices offer ultrasound-guided biopsy and diagnostic imaging. Patients who wish to see a Hartford HealthCare Medical Group breast surgeon can be seen within 24 hours.
