A Multidisciplinary Team Approach to Breast Health and Breast Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis

As a comprehensive breast center, the Sullivan Center at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C., is staffed by specialists from diverse disciplines who work closely together in the diagnosis, treatment and support of our patients. At regularly scheduled breast conferences, patient cases are discussed by breast radiologists, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, pain medicine specialists, oncology nurses and others that make up the members of the breast conference team. Together, this group explores all possible treatment options in order to recommend the best breast treatment plan for the patient.

Pathologists

Our team of breast specialists includes pathology faculty members who specialize in breast cancer and have extensive experience evaluating and accurately classifying breast tissue specimens. Our pathologists are so trusted that it’s common for women to bring their slides from another facility to us for a second opinion. On occasion we discover abnormalities, including breast cancer, which may have been previously overlooked.
