Reston Breast Care Specialists, together with the Reston Hospital Center Breast Care team, offer the latest surgical techniques and procedures for the treatment of breast cancer and benign breast disease. Our breast surgeons and doctors understand what it means to be given a cancer diagnosis and are committed to providing compassionate care with a patient-first approach.
Our breast care team can provide advanced breast cancer treatments through our association with Reston Hospital Center. We have the ability to take advantage of frozen section pathology at the hospital, a cutting-edge process where tissues are rapidly analyzed and diagnosed while the patient is in surgery to determine whether or not the cancer has spread to the lymph nodes and if they should be removed. Since the examination of tissue generally takes 24 hours, being able to get a diagnosis so quickly allows the breast surgeon to make any needed adjustments immediately, eliminating subsequent surgeries and saving the patient time and money.
After breast cancer surgery, our physicians work with plastic surgeons on the breast care team to offer reconstructive options. Most of the time, women have the option of having their breast surgery and reconstruction in a single operation, another way to avoid more surgery.
Surgical options offered at our breast care center include but are not limited to:
- Minimally invasive breast biopsy
- Breast conserving surgery
- Various types of mastectomy
- Minimally invasive surgical lymph node assessment
