The breast surgical oncologists at the Johns Hopkins Breast Center are specialists in breast cancer surgery. Recent studies published in the British Medical Journal and the British Journal of Cancer confirm that patients of breast surgeons who do a high volume of breast cancer surgeries have a higher rate of survival than patients of lower-volume breast surgeons.
Patients should seek out a breast surgeon who performs a high volume of breast cancer surgeries, and not just breast surgeries such as biopsies, but lumpectomies and mastectomies as well. Our breast surgical oncologists have completed surgical oncology fellowships as part of their training and they operate on more than 800 breast cancer patients a year. They are also experienced with oncoplastic surgery, a novel approach to breast cancer surgery that combines plastic surgery techniques with lumpectomy and spares many women from mastectomy.
