Within the Sentara Cancer Network, you’ll find the most innovative technologies and treatments for breast cancer care. When you seek cancer treatment at any of the nationally accredited Sentara Comprehensive Breast Centers, you are actually tapping into an integrated network of cancer care where skilled experts join together to make clear diagnosis of cancer and to recommend options for proven treatments.
Hampton Roads benefits from highly skilled physicians who are leaders in their specialties, often as the driving force for bringing advanced technology and new treatment options to patients here. From the latest diagnostic tool of 3D mammography to treatment options including mammosite, intraoperative radiation and an extensive list of clinical trials, the Sentara Cancer Network has taken the lead to introduce the latest in cancer care to Hampton Roads.
Because of the number of patients helped in the network, the physicians and staff have extensive experience in treating breast cancer. In fact, among all of the breast cancer cases in Virginia in 2012, the Sentara Cancer Network in Hampton Roads treated or diagnosed 21% of the total. With breast cancer, early detection of disease leads to the best outcomes. Our teams are proud to exceed the national figures for the number of breast cancers found in the earliest stages. Through diagnosis and treatment, patients can rely on specially trained nurse navigators for assistance.
The ongoing drive for continuous improvement and the careful implementation of national breast cancer treatment guidelines are the reasons why the Sentara Comprehensive Breast Centers have been recognized by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer.
