Our Comprehensive Breast Care Program is the most advanced in South Carolina. In fact, it’s the only one in the state that’s both accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers and a National Cancer Institute-designated cancer center. Our Advanced Breast Reconstruction Program offers the full spectrum of breast reconstruction options, including the DIEP flap procedure.
Our doctors and nurses work together to treat your physical and emotional needs, providing expert guidance as you move from diagnosis to treatment. We also review cases during our regular Breast Tumor Board Meetings, giving patients another level of analysis to ensure all options are thoroughly explored. And we never lose sight of the importance of putting your needs first, tailoring your treatment to your wishes and scheduling appointments at times that work well for you.
Cancer is personal. It can affect every part of your life. And not all cancers are created equal – what happens with one person’s disease can be completely different for someone else with the same type of cancer. That’s why we will look at your case in a way that’s as individual as you are, drawing on the expertise and knowledge gained from research at South Carolina’s only National Cancer Institute-Designated Cancer Center.
