The breast health specialists at MedStar Georgetown include fellowship trained surgeons, medical oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, plastic surgeons and clinical cancer geneticists who work together to provide you with a personalized treatment plan.
Standard radiation can involve five to six weeks of therapy. But with IORT, there is a single dose delivered in the operating room immediately following a lumpectomy. Ask your MedStar Georgetown provider if a lumpectomy and IORT might be right for you.
Facing a breast cancer diagnosis can trigger a wide range of emotions. Our Survivors Offering Support (SOS) program pairs newly-diagnosed breast cancer patients with breast cancer survivors to help make the breast cancer journey less confusing. Survivors share insights into their personal breast cancer experience while providing information and emotional support.
