Breast Surgical Oncology

Surgery is an essential part of treating breast cancer. Breast surgical oncologists specialize in the treatment of breast cancer using various surgical techniques depending on each patient’s condition. There are many considerations that help to determine the most appropriate surgical approach for each breast cancer patient.

The breast cancer surgeons of Compass Oncology in Portland, OR and Vancouver, WA are well-known experts in their field and are at the forefront of innovation in breast cancer surgery. They work closely with our team of medical oncologists and radiation oncologists to create an individualized treatment plan that may include several therapies before and/or after surgery to remove the cancer.

Compass Oncology is pleased to include some of the only breast surgeons in the Portland area who also work closely with the reconstruction and plastic surgery process. Oncoplasty specialists are not only familiar with the techniques for removing cancer from the breast, they are also trained in the breast reconstruction process. They work closely with the top plastic and reconstructive surgeons in the Portland area to ensure the best result for women who will encounter breast reconstruction as part of their treatment and recovery.
