Breast Surgical Care

Most women with breast cancer have some type of surgery as part of their treatment. At Avista, we understand the diagnosis of breast disease is nothing short of frightening. Shortly after your diagnosis, you will partner with a breast surgeon who you can trust with your surgery – and your life.

Breast surgical services at Avista may involve:

  • Removal of as much of the cancer as possible through a partial mastectomy (lumpectomy), full mastectomy or radical mastectomy 
  • Identifying whether cancer has spread to the lymph nodes under the arm 
  • Breast reconstruction
  • Relieving symptoms of advanced cancer
  • Breast Surgery Preparation Class

    After meeting with your surgeon and prior to your surgery, you have the opportunity to be part of our breast surgery preparation class taught by registered nurses and physical therapists specifically trained in post-surgery breast care. Our goal is to minimize your fear, prepare you for surgery and teach you how to care for yourself, or a loved one, after surgery.
