What Is Breast Cancer Surgery?
When a patient has been diagnosed with breast cancer, surgery to remove cancerous growths will likely be a part of treatment. At Sierra Pacific Surgical, our experienced general surgeons specialize in lumpectomy, partial mastectomy, mastectomy, and nipple-sparing mastectomy procedures. A lumpectomy involves removing the cancerous or abnormal growth while conserving as much breast tissue as possible. A mastectomy involves removing all of the tissue in one or both breasts. A nipple-sparing mastectomy removes the breast tissue while leaving the breast skin and nipple intact. Contact our Roseville or Folsom, CA office today to schedule a consultation, and learn more about life-saving breast cancer surgery.
