Piedmont Cancer Provides Personalized Care for Breast Cancer

Planning for treatment begins as soon as the breast cancer has been diagnosed. Our breast cancer specialists at Piedmont provide a range of individualized treatment options, including surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy and breast cancer specific clinical trials.

We take a team approach to caring for patients with breast cancer. Our multidisciplinary team of doctors, nurses and navigators work together to provide personalized treatment for each patient. Treatment planning conferences are used to provide patients with a treatment recommendation.

As a certified member in MD Anderson Cancer Network®, a program of the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Piedmont Cancer has access to oncology specialist consultations from clinical experts at the top research cancer center in the U.S.

Surgical Expertise

Following the detection of breast cancer by biopsy, surgery is usually performed to remove the cancerous tissue from the breast. Our specialized breast cancer and plastic surgeons have expertise in helping patients decide which of these procedures are best for them, depending on individual needs and concerns.

Radiation Therapy

Radiation therapy uses high-energy x-rays to damage the DNA inside breast cancer cells. This treatment is recommended when there is a chance that small numbers of tumor cells may still be present after surgery or when radiation therapy can be effective without surgery. Piedmont radiation oncologists prescribe and administer the treatment using the latest technology available.

Medical Therapy

Our medical oncologists are experts in the use of medicines to treat and/or prevent breast cancer recurrence after surgery or after it has recurred or spread. Breast cancer treatment may include:

  • Hormonal therapy
  • Chemotherapy
  • Palliative therapy to provide comfort and support

Breast Cancer Clinical Trials

The newest treatment options are available to our patients through access to clinical trials. Review of breast cancer specific clinical trials and proven new therapies are discussed with patients during clinic visits with Piedmont’s cancer specialists.
