The preoperative diagnosis of breast cancer by minimally invasive methods is now the standard of care. The advantages include the following:
- Small scar
- Excellent cosmesis
- Minimal pain
- Results in greater likelihood of achieving negative margins at surgery
- Allows better planning for the definitive breast cancer surgery and reduces the number of operations required to treat breast cancer.
This biopsy procedure is a quick outpatient procedure performed in the comfort of our office under the guidance of ultrasound. The procedure requires a tiny 4 mm skin nick, requires no suturing and leaves little to no surface scarring. Patients are able to resume normal activity hours after the procedure.
Dr. App is a leader in minimally invasive biopsy and has been performing this procedure since 2006. We are proud to offer you the most advanced and least invasive techniques to conserve breast tissue, reduce pain and minimize scarring.
