The Center for Advanced Breast Care
offers comprehensive and holistic services for
women with all forms of breast problems. Our approach
combines state-of-the-art medical care with a
nurturing, individualized approach. We want every
woman to feel that her needs have been met in
a warm and supportive environment.
Our programs are available to all
women. Women can be self-referred or referred
by their primary care physicians or other specialists.
Women come to us because they have problems
such as breast pain, a breast lump or mass,
nipple discharge, an abnormal mammogram, or
because they are at high risk for developing
breast cancer. We also have experience treating
adolescent, male, and pregnancy-related breast
We provide thorough evaluation and diagnostic services, including in-office ultrasound as well as other diagnostic imaging at area medical facilities including MRI, PEM Scan, and Mammography. Our breast surgeons are skilled in the latest treatment and evaluation techniques, including core needle biopsies guided by ultrasound or stereotactic mammography, and mammosite catheter insertion.
We have the experience and expertise
to effectively treat women with benign (non-cancerous)
conditions such as fibrocystic changes, fibroadenomas,
nipple discharge, and breast pain.
If breast cancer surgery is required,
our practice performs breast-conserving lumpectomies
on approximately 70 percent of women – far
more than the national rate. We are also involved
in clinical research activities to ensure that
our patients receive the best possible care.
We are happy to provide second opinion
consultations to give women the information, confidence,
and understanding to make the best decisions related
to their care and treatment.
We have a strong focus on comprehensive patient education, including genetic testing and counseling, preoperative and postoperative education, and training and education on breast health. We provide educational seminars on topics of interest for women with breast cancer, a history of the disease, or who have a higher risk for developing breast cancer.
In addition, we offer Integrative Services such as massage, nutrition counseling, psycho-social support, physical and occupational therapy, and lymphedema testing and management.
Our services are available at our
offices in Arlington Heights and Elk Grove Village.
