Henry Ford breast cancer surgery suite
We perform breast cancer surgery in a surgical suite dedicated to breast cancer patients. Here, breast cancer is our entire focus, and familiar health care providers will be by your side.
Our operating rooms have featured Faxitron technology since 2014. This Bluetooth-connected X-ray machine allows surgeons to X-ray a specimen in the operating room while the procedure is underway. A radiologist can immediately review it and confirm we have removed as much of the cancer as possible before the procedure is over. This improves accuracy and means your surgery may be shorter.
Types of breast cancer surgery
The type of breast cancer surgery that is right for you will depend on your diagnosis, health needs, and priorities. Our team performs thousands of breast cancer procedures each year. This means you have a wide array of techniques, approaches and technologies available to you.
You also may be a candidate for an innovative approach to breast conservation. Our team uses cryoablation to freeze breast tumors and kill the cancerous cells without surgery.
