A Dedicated Program for All Breast Cancer Needs

Our breast cancer team represents expertise across the spectrum of breast cancer care: breast imaging, breast surgery, medical and radiation oncology, reconstructive surgery, clinical genetics, pathology and nursing. Through this integrated approach, patients receive a comprehensive treatment plan that optimizes chances of their survival and quality of life.

At the University of Chicago Medicine, it's not enough to offer every treatment option. Every breast cancer patient is unique, so our breast cancer experts take the time to thoroughly and thoughtfully explain each patient’s disease and treatment options so she can make an informed choice about her preferred treatment method.

We're dedicated to making the breast cancer care experience as seamless and accommodating as possible. Our specialists work together to streamline appointments for patients. Compassionate, one-on-one attention to each cancer patient is part of the high caliber of care patients have come to expect from the University of Chicago Medicine.
