Breast Surgery and Breast Health
A patient receives a breast exam.
We offer a wide range of services for patients requiring breast surgery and for those interested in maintaining optimal breast health. Our highly-trained breast surgeons use the latest technology, including robotics, to perform many surgeries using minimally invasive techniques which allow the patient to recover more quickly. Diseases that bring women and men to a breast surgeon include: breast cancer, breast infection, breast lump, breast pain and fibrocystic breast disease.
Our breast surgeons work together with other physicians and health specialists to diagnose and treat each patient with breast disease, whether benign or malignant, that comes to NorthShore University HealthSystem.

Some of the procedures these patients may encounter are: ductal lavage and ductoscopy, mastectomy, lumpectomy and breast biopsy.
