Sharp Memorial Outpatient Pavilion
Breast Health Center at Sharp Memorial Hospital
Dedication to your absolute wellness.
With state-of-the-art facilities all in one convenient location, Sharp Memorial's nationally recognized Breast Health Center at the Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute is solely devoted to the prevention, early detection and advanced treatment of all breast conditions.
Giving you the best and latest treatments options.
We are here to help you face your cancer diagnosis. That's why we offer an early detection program to help educate women about their lifetime risk of developing breast cancer.
We also use the most sophisticated technology available — including 3-D tomosynthesis mammography that can detect breast conditions earlier, and powerful diagnostic imaging systems that enable more effective and less invasive testing. Our advanced linear accelerators are designed to deliver radiation therapy precisely while sparing healthy tissue. And we are proud to offer the deep inspiration breath hold technique, which provides our patients with left-sided breast cancer maximum protection from radiation to their hearts and brachytherapy.
You'll also benefit from the expertise of a multidisciplinary team of specialists who meet weekly to discuss your case and make recommendations on treatment options.
You also have access to the latest cancer treatment options available through our clinical trials. And after treatment, we provide you with long-term monitoring to quickly identify and address any signs of recurrence or treatment side effects, including lymphedema.
You've got a whole team behind you.
We aren't just treating your cancer, we're caring for you. A team of dedicated specialists - from expert breast surgeons to specialized oncologists to plastic and reconstructive surgeons, to nutrition and genetic counselors — works closely together to review your diagnoses and personalize your treatment. We want you and your loved ones to have peace of mind knowing that multiple experts are caring for your every need.
We're by your side through it all.
We know that breast cancer may be one of the most difficult challenges you and your family will ever face. So we have patient navigators, fully available to you, who are dedicated to helping you ease the burdens that come with this diagnosis. Our navigators, who are all registered nurses, provide compassionate, ongoing support from diagnosis through treatment and survivorship. They are available to help you understand treatment options, provide support to help you manage side effects and to connect you with community resources.
Our education classes are available for you as well — including a bimonthly nutrition class, a monthly lymphedema class and a quarterly breast cancer education class taught by our expert physicians.
We also offer a host of integrative therapies to soothe your mind, body and spirit.
You are not alone in this journey. We are with you every step of the way.
