Surgical Options

Dr. Negar Golesorkhi, our fellowship-trained breast surgical oncologist, offers a variety of options in the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. While the exact approach will be customized to each individual, options include genetic testing, minimally invasive biopsies, partial breast radiation, intraoperative radiation, risk reduction therapies, breast conservation therapy and nipple sparing mastectomies.

Additional Care

Should your treatment plan include surgery, you will be seen for your first appointment after surgery by our Physician Assistant, Gretchen Edwards. At the time of your second visit after surgery, you will be seen by Dr. Golesorkhi and Ms. Edwards who work together very closely as a team to ensure coordinated and quality care. We are committed to supporting cancer survivorship patients with information or referrals on nutrition, physical activity, follow-up visits and support services.
