Ferncreek General Surgery Breast Care

At Ferncreek General Surgery we understand the anxiety that most women experience when a potential breast problem is identified. Our goal is to minimize this stress by striving to expedite the diagnosis and plan any necessary treatment in a relaxed and personal office environment, whilst providing our patients with the maximum information so they can fully understand their condition and its management.

Our Board Certified surgeons are thoroughly trained and experienced in the diagnosis and surgical management of benign and malignant breast conditions, and are members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons. They are experienced in current techniques including breast ultrasound, needle biopsy, breast conserving surgery, sentinel lymph node biopsy, and placement of devices for breast irradiation. They work closely with the Cape Fear Valley Breast Care Center, and, when necessary, other local specialists including radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, and plastic surgeons.

Evaluation of a breast abnormality begins with an office visit, which can usually be arranged within 48 hours of a request to be seen. We do not require a preliminary visit to your primary care physician, or any testing before this initial evaluation. Diagnostic studies may be done in the office or arranged as necessary, and if a needle biopsy is required this is sometimes done at the first visit: our goal is to make a diagnosis as soon as possible. If surgery is necessary this may be performed at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center, or Highsmith Rainey Hospital.

When evaluation demonstrates breast cancer we make great effort to go through in detail each individual’s diagnosis and options for treatment. Complex cases can be discussed at an interdisciplinary conference at Cape Fear Valley Medical Center. Samples for genetic testing, when indicated, can be collected in the office. Educational materials are available, and we can provide information regarding other useful resources. Long term follow up is an important part of our care for all breast cancer patients.

A change or problem in the breast should never be ignored – early diagnosis is vital if a serious condition is present. If you have a question or feel you need to be seen please call, and we will be glad to offer you the same high quality of care and expertise that we provide to all our patients.
