Piedmont Oncology 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 various 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 treatment recommendations.


Surgical Expertise

Surgery is usually performed to remove cancerous tissue when breast cancer is found through a biopsy. Our specialized breast cancer and plastic surgeons have expertise in helping patients decide which procedure is 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. Radiation oncologists recommend this treatment 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 use the treatment using the latest technology available.


Medical Therapy

Our medical oncologists are experts in using 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. Doctors review breast cancer-specific clinical trials, and proven new therapies are discussed with patients during clinic visits with Piedmont’s cancer specialists.
