Breast Cancer Treatment That Balances Health and Aesthetics

Your health comes first. You’ll find the best available treatment at the Cancer Institute, but we’ll always respect your concerns for physical appearance and body image.

Here are some of the surgical procedures available at the Cancer Institute:

  • Breast Conservation Surgery with Lumpectomy: During a lumpectomy, your surgeon will remove the cancer and a small amount of normal surrounding tissue. Your surgeon will take a minimally invasive and cosmetic approach.
  • Mastectomy with or without Breast Reconstruction: During a mastectomy, your surgeon will remove all of the breast tissue. Simultaneous reconstruction can usually be performed at the same time if you choose.
  • Axillary Surgery: Your surgeon may need to remove some or all lymph nodes under the armpit as part of the operation. This is typically done as part of the surgery and may require a separate small incision under the armpit.

Mammography Locations

At Hartford HealthCare, we have mammography sites throughout Connecticut that are convenient, safe, and suit your busy schedule.
