The CHI Health Breast Health Center at Lakeside is dedicated exclusively to breast cancer prevention, diagnosis, treatment, and the management and surveillance of pre-existing cancer. Patients can expect the highest level of accuracy in diagnostic care, including mammogram results within 24 hours.
More importantly, if anything suspicious is found, patients will receive follow-up testing and expert consultation within days – not weeks. The Breast Center expedites the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer by offering technology and staff specifically dedicated to breast care and cancer. Our advanced digital mammography technology provides the highest level of accuracy for even the smallest tumors.
Breast Cancer Team
For those who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, they meet with our surgeons for consultation, treatment, and follow-up within the Breast Center. Care is coordinated with the multi-disciplinary team of cancer specialists including Radiology, Pathology, Medical Oncology, and Radiation Oncology.
The Breast Health Center is staffed by a Nurse Practitioner, fellowship-trained breast Radiologists, and Surgeons who are dedicated to and have special training in breast care. If cancer is detected, patients of the Breast Health Center are also offered the opportunity to partner with a Nurse Navigator. A Nurse Navigator is an oncology-certified nurse who is available to guide patients through the entire process of diagnosis and treatment.
