Comprehensive Breast Cancer Center
In partnership with UC Health, the University of Cincinnati Cancer Institute breast cancer team offers patients the combined benefit of advanced, science-driven medicine with a personalized, compassionate approach to treatment and follow-up care.
The team—made up of radiation oncologists, radiologists, medical oncologists, pathologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons, fellowship-trained surgical oncologists and a highly experienced oncology nursing staff and—meets regularly as a team to discuss and determine the best treatment plan for women affected by breast cancer.
Our surgical oncologists focus exclusively on treating cancer and are among the most technically experienced in the Tristate area. Cancer surgeons and plastic/reconstructive surgeons work side-by-side to plan in advance for reconstruction, whether the patient chooses immediate microsurgical breast reconstruction (deep inferior epigastric perforator flap), rotational flaps, traditional free flap surgery or implants.
The University of Cincinnati Medical Center is the only facility in the Greater Cincinnati area offering Tomotherapy, 3D image-guided radiation therapy that minimizes damage to surrounding healthy tissues. This and other advanced radiation oncology services are available at multiple locations across Greater Cincinnati.
The breast imaging team focuses on giving women the most accurate, situation appropriate imaging tests to minimize the risk for misdiagnosis and unnecessary testing.
Like all UC Cancer Institute-affiliated physicians, our breast cancer specialists also serve as faculty members at the University of Cincinnati (UC) College of Medicine, giving them access to the latest scientifically validated medical information to help patients live healthier lives. They also serve as educators for the next generation of physicians in training and provide continuing education opportunities for community physicians.
