Treatment that uses drugs to stop the growth of cancer cells, either by killing the cells or by stopping them from dividing.
Slows or stops hormone-sensitive tumor growth by blocking the ability to produce hormones, or by interfering with effects of hormones on cancer cells.
This targeted treatment induces the immune system to recognize and kill cancer cells.
We use a variety of breast reconstruction options such as implant-based & autologous reconstruction based on your individual needs and condition. The goal of our plastic surgery specialists is to rebuild and help restore the look of a natural breast with minimal scarring.
Clinical trials allow you to try an alternative therapy to potentially treat cancer or relieve treatment side effects. All of today’s standard cancer treatments are a result of previous clinical trials.
