Breast Care. Reimagined.
We look at breast health differently, considering not only your clinical needs but also your emotional ones. Watch the playlist below to learn more about our women's health services.
It’s all about personalized care to keep you and your family informed. We’ll help you know your risk and give you better options to find breast cancer early, using innovative technology and approaches. Three-dimensional mammography means better detection and fewer callbacks because we commit to same-day screening results whenever possible. You’ll have access to the renowned Bennett Cancer Center for exceptional treatment. Because women who are considered high-risk have an increased risk for developing other cancers—particularly ovarian cancer—gynecologic oncologists are part of our multidisciplinary team approach. We are a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence, designated by the American College of Radiology, and we offer:
- Real-time reading of screening or diagnostic mammography during normal business hours
- State-of-the-art 3D mammography, which allows us to review breast tissue in millimeter slices to detect breast cancer at its earliest stages and eliminate false positives
- A breast-imaging nurse navigator who answers questions, stays in touch throughout your treatment, and connects you with any needed support services
- Breast-conserving surgery whenever possible, such as lumpectomy or partial mastectomy
- Narcotic-sparing pain blocks that expedite recovery after surgery
- Reduced wait time for biopsy
Our team includes physicians and breast health specialists who are highly credentialed and nationally recognized for their expertise. Among them are fellowship-trained female breast surgeons and breast-imaging fellowship-trained radiologists who are dedicated exclusively to breast care. Our technologists are dedicated breast imagers who are credentialed and licensed by the American College of Radiology. They work with expert pathologists to discuss—on a weekly basis—newly diagnosed breast cancers and breast biopsies to determine the best and most accurate treatment plan. Reconstructive plastic surgeons, medical oncologists at the Bennett Cancer Center, genetic counselors and a breast-imaging nurse navigator complete the team that is among the most respected in the area for providing comprehensive, personalized breast health care.
Personalized Patient Experience
The Breast Center combines physician expertise and the most advanced treatment options with personalized medicine that looks not only at the disease, but also at the patient and her unique physical, emotional and spiritual needs. As a Planetree-designated facility, we believe that to heal is to make whole. That’s why we offer a patient- and family-centered approach to care that welcomes you and your loved ones as members of your care team.
Stamford Health is committed to providing the absolute finest in care across the entire continuum, from prevention and wellness to diagnosis, treatment and ongoing support. We’re equally committed to being a caring, compassionate partner, not only in sickness but also in health. It is a promise built on the unity of mind and body. It is Healing. Reimagined.
