The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences’ Breast Team™ knows that every case of breast cancer is unique, and that every patient requires individualized care.
The Breast Team’s personalized approach means that we will look at all of the options available when it comes to treating a breast cancer patient, and if necessary, create new ones. Thanks to advances in research, many of them made here at UAMS, and our state-of-the-art technology, we are able to offer our patients a consistent level of care unmatched anywhere in Arkansas.
Each patient is special to us, and receives certain forms of treatment suited to their personal requirements. Whether it’s radiation therapy, immunotherapy, surgery, chemotherapy, or a combination of these therapies, our team of nurses and physicians will decide on a course of treatment that best meets each patient’s needs.
The UAMS Breast Team takes its “team” approach very seriously, with surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, medical and radiation oncologists, researchers, scientists and engineers working together to design specialized treatment options for every patient.
With the help of our patients, the Breast Team is exploring new avenues of treating breast cancer. Every step taken is done with the patient’s needs in mind, and every step leads us closer to a cure.
