What is Breast Surgery?
Physicians who specialize in breast surgery perform procedures to treat breast disease and cancer. A breast specialist may deal with breast tissue, soreness, disease, infection, and/or nipple discharge. Surgeons who have expertise in breast surgery also specialize in the evaluation of breast lumps, diagnostic biopsies, surgery consultations, risk assessments and reconstruction. Reconstruction techniques include implant, tissue flap, and free flap reconstruction. Because breast health is a comprehensive medical discipline, breast specialists also work closely with radiologists, oncologists, and pathologists.
