By bringing together services, expertise and personalized care in one convenient location, Advocate Center for Breast Care shortens the time between detection of a lump and diagnosis and treatment, offering women every hope for a complete recovery. We provide the latest in technology with 3 digital mammography units, bone densitometry, 2 advanced ultrasound units and a stereotactic biopsy table. The center is open six days a week, including evenings, and we also expedite other services, such as clinical breast exams, follow-up tests and appointments with specialists, so that a woman facing the possibility of breast cancer gets a diagnosis and clear explanation of her options as quickly as possible and usually within 48 hours. We also provide important emotional, psychological and spiritual support for women and their families. Each woman has an entire team of physicians working on her behalf - without paying additional fees or scheduling more office visits. The multidisciplinary team of doctors reviews each new case of breast cancer, then develops an individual care plan to deliver the very best treatment available ? including lumpectomy, mastectomy, radiation and hormonal therapies and plastic surgery. The center also provides genetic testing for individuals whose personal and family history may make them more at risk for breast cancer. Those with an inherited risk of breast cancer are referred to a specialist to plan for prevention and early detection.
