Breast Surgery Care and Support
Comprehensive Care, Collaborative Team
Many patients have breast cancers that require treatment by, and coordination with, multiple healthcare professionals. Breast Institute patients at HackensackUMC can expect to have a team of healthcare professionals who work together collaboratively to find the best treatment options and most comprehensive and individualized approach.
Our patient-centered, integrated approach is designed to maximize quality of life and provide the best possible opportunity for a cure. Our team includes experts from breast and surgical oncology, medical oncology, plastic and reconstructive surgery, radiation oncology, chemotherapy, social work, nurses (patient navigators), nutrition, physical therapy, psychiatry, and pain medicine.
The John Theurer Cancer Center houses all of the medical and radiation oncology services. Members of this specialized team of professionals are dedicated to providing you outstanding care in treating and managing breast cancer beyond surgery. Here, you will find specialists who provide systemic therapy for cancer—treatment that is delivered through drugs and radiation therapy. As part of your dedicated team, they work closely with your surgeon to provide you with the best possible care for your individual condition.
