Leading expertise from nationally accredited surgeons
We give patients access to the top surgeons and the most advanced science-based technologies and treatments. Henry Ford leads a seven-state research consortium to advance personalized healthcare by studying how lifestyle, environment and genetics influences a person’s health and disease risk. Each patient and breast cancer is unique, and treatment should be as well. We take your type of cancer, health needs and concerns into account to create a personalized treatment plan. Our radiologists, surgeons and oncologists utilize numerous advanced techniques, including breast-conserving treatment, whenever possible.
At Henry Ford, our breast cancer research starts with you. From there, the possibilities are endless, and have taken us all the way to Ghana in Africa. That’s where Henry Ford breast cancer medical director Dr. Lisa Newman, M.D., has been researching the genetic origins of triple negative breast cancer, an aggressive and difficult to treat type, in order to create more survivors.
