One of the more exciting events that occurred this past October is the Jordan Hospital’s opening of its State-of-The-Art Breast Center. This Center is a community-based comprehensive diagnostic and treatment center providing “one stop shopping.” The facility is a full service center offering digital screening and diagnostic mammography, stereotactic core biopsy, breast ultrasound exams, breast biopsy, and breast MRI. A multidisciplinary team staffs the Center and includes radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, nurses, technologists and other support staff proving a wide range of services.The surgeons and specialists are specifically trained to handle complex breast pathology as a team. The patient receives the best and most up-to-date care all under one roof. Surgical treatment options in particular, are comprehensive and involve a multidisciplinary approach as exemplified by the close coordination between breast cancer surgeon, Dr. Dominic Zazzarino and plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Stephen Delia, with Dr. Delia offering the post-mastectomy patient the full gamut of breast reconstrucion options. Patients can make an informed decision as to whether prosthetic breast reconstruction or reconstruction using their own tissue (called autologous reconstruction) is best for them. The most exciting aspect of this venture, however, is that now women can feel confident that they can indeed receive Quality Care Close to Home!
