Breast procedures performed by our expert breast surgeons include:

  • Breast biopsy: Removal of a small tissue sample to be tested for the presence of abnormal cells
  • Cyst aspiration: Removal of fluid from a breast cyst to be tested for the presence of abnormal cells
  • Fine needle aspiration (FNA): A type of biopsy that uses a needle to obtain a tissue sample
  • Sentinel lymph node biopsy: Surgical procedure testing lymph nodes to see if cancer has spread and, if yes, how far.
