24-hour Neonatal Support
In the first 24-hours our physicians monitor your baby’s health.
According to breastcancer.org, "three-dimensional mammography (also called digital breast tomosynthesis, digital tomosynthesis, or just tomosynthesis) creates a three-dimensional picture of the breast using X-rays. Several low-dose images from different angles around the breast are used to create the 3-D picture. Several studies have found that 3-D mammograms find more cancers than traditional 2-D mammograms and also reduce the number of false positives."
Axillary Reverse Lymphatic Mapping
This preserves the lymphatic drainage of the arm during surgery, decreasing the risk of developing lymphedema.
Bioidentical Hormone Therapy
The hormones used in this therapy are identical on a molecular level to the hormones the body produces naturally.
Bladder Lift & Repair
This minimally-invasive surgical procedure treats urinary incontinence, and lifts the urethra and bladder into their normal position.
Bone Density Testing
This simple, noninvasive procedure assesses the strength of the bones for people at risk for osteoporosis.
Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is a computerized process that uses powerful magnetic field and radio waves to get a detailed look within the breast.
There are often many questions about breastfeeding, especially for first time mothers, such as breastfeeding positions and the use of a breast pump
This is the use of drugs to treat cancer. We also have the only dedicated, inpatient oncology unit in the region at Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital.
Much like a digital camera, this process converts x-rays into a more precise digital picture of the breast.
This is a diagnostic evaluation of hormone levels after childbirth.
A surgical procedure that destroys the lining of the uterus to treat abnormal uterine bleeding.
External Beam Radiation Therapy
This procedure uses radiation aimed at destroying cancer cells and shrink tumors.
This test identifies changes in chromosomes, genes and proteins, which can influence the behavior of your tumor.
Gynecological Cancer Risk Assessment
This assesses the increased risk of inherited cancer syndromes due to biological and familial risk factors.
This can be used in many aspects of breast cancer treatment, including initial risk reduction, minimizing the cancer’s risk of recurrence and preventing the cancer from spreading to other areas of the body.
In a total hysterectomy the entire uterus and cervix are surgically removed. There are also minimally-invasive alternatives, depending on the size of the uterus.
Intraoperative Digital Specimen X-ray (Bioptics Machine)
This shows surgeons images of the tissue removed in less than a minute, which enables them to remove all of the cancer in just one operation.
Large Format Pathology
This gives the pathologist a unique view of the entire cancer on a single slide, making diagnosis of margins more accurate.
This surgical procedure focuses on the removal of the tumor and surrounding tissue
Mammography is the most common type of breast imaging currently in use. A mammogram test is a critical part of early detection and diagnosis of breast diseases in women.
MarginProbe Margin Analysis.
This process enables surgeons to optimize the removal of cancer during breast conservation surgery or lumpectomies.
This is the surgical removal of all the breast tissue.
Menopause Evaluation & Treatment
Menopause is when the ovaries stops producing estrogen. Treatment may include hormone replacement therapy to address many of the symptoms such as hot flashes. Your doctor can help you find the treatment that’s right for you.
Minimally-invasive & robotic surgery
Minimally-invasive surgery is also known as endoscopic surgery because the surgeon uses an endoscope through a very small incision. It also may be called laparoscopic surgery. Robotic surgery or robot-assisted surgery offers more precision and flexibility and is also minimally-invasive.
MRI Needle Biopsy
This minimally invasive procedure uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to guide a needle to remove a tissue sample for examination.
Nipple-Areola Sparing Mastectomy
This surgical procedure is a mastectomy without the removal of any of the nipple or skin around the areola.
This test is done to evaluate your baby’s condition, including movement and heartbeat. It’s often the first picture of your baby.
This is the use of sound waves to produce a picture of the baby in the mother’s uterus.
This preserves the breast’s appearance by reshaping breast tissue during cancer surgery.
Osteoporosis prevention & treatment
Osteoporosis is a condition where the density and bones become fragile and brittle. Prevention includes stopping smoking, avoiding excessive alcohol use and preventing falls. Treatment includes weight-bearing exercises and a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D.
Partial Breast Radiation
This is delivered by an implanted device, which delivers radiation to the tumor site from inside the breast through a small catheter, rather than from an external beam.
The choice of surgery will depend on which organs are involved. The surgical procedures may include repair of a prolapsed bladder or urethra, hysterectomy, repair of the rectum and small bowel.
This is planning prior to becoming pregnant. This gives mothers-to-be the education, resources and peace of mind they need for a healthy pregnancy and outcome.
This is to restore the breast’s appearance after a mastectomy.
Sentinel Lymph Node Dissection
According to Breastcancer.org this is the surgical removal of the first few lymph nodes that filters fluid draining away from the area of the breast that contained the breast cancer. This can often eliminate the need to remove deeper lymph nodes.
Stereotactic Needle Biopsy
This minimally invasive procedure uses x-ray or CT scan to obtain a sample of a suspected lesion in the breast.
Surgical Second Opinions
Getting a second opinion from another physician may help you make a more informed decision if you are contemplating any surgical procedure.
An ultrasound scan is a diagnostic tool that uses high-frequency sound waves or echoes instead of radiation to create images of inside the body.
Ultrasound Needle Biopsy
This minimally invasive procedure uses high-frequency sound waves to obtain tissue samples.
Well Women Exams
It’s recommended women have well woman exams beginning at age 21. These include a clinical breast exam, pelvic exam, and depending on age a mammogram and Pap smear.
