"Personalized care means something different here at Einstein. We treat the whole person, not just their disease." – Lisa Jablon, MD, FACS, Director of Einstein Breast Health Program and Einstein Breast Cancer Risk Assessment Program
Our nationally renowned cancer specialists are committed clinicians, practitioners and researchers. Our commitment to research allows us to offer patients the most promising new therapies. We believe that it is important to develop better therapies for patients who have a poor prognosis with currently available treatments.
Our Cancer Program is fully accredited by the American College of Surgeon’s Commission on Cancer and in March 2008 received a 3 Year Approval Award with Commendation.
Sentinel node biopsy. This procedure helps surgeons pinpoint which lymph nodes may be affected by breast cancer. Because fewer lymph nodes are removed, there are typically fewer side effects. Our physicians have performed more than 1400 of these types of procedures.
Skin-sparing mastectomy. Following a mastectomy, the surgical team, including a skilled plastic surgeon, can perform immediate breast reconstruction using the patient’s own skin – resulting in a more natural-looking breast.
Oncoplastic surgery. This surgical technique combines oncological surgery (removal of the cancerous tumor) with plastic surgery (breast reconstruction).
Radiation treatment. Our radiation oncologists use advanced radiation treatment planning techniques to tailor the radiation treatment program to the individual patient. These treatment and planning techniques are customized for each patient to maximize the chance for controlling the tumor while minimizing the risk of side effects. In addition, our radiation oncologists are actively involved in clinical trials that give patients access to the newest and most advanced breast cancer treatments available.
Chemotherapy. During this treatment phase, physicians use a variety of drug combinations to eliminate cancer cells.
Our team of board certified medical oncologists are committed to conducting clinical research trials that help find better therapies for our patients. Our medical oncologists and research nurse coordinators actively enroll and treat patients on clinical trials.
The division maintains leadership positions within the Jefferson Oncology Group, the Eastern Cooperative Oncology Group (ECOG) and the National Surgical Adjuvant Breast Project (NSABP).
We are designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE) by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
The mammography equipment at each of our three convenient locations is digital and accredited by the American College of Radiology according to the Mammography Quality Standards Act.
We offer advanced breast imaging technologies including:
The radiology breast team participates in research trials that are designed to enhance their diagnostic skills at finding and diagnosing breast abnormalities.
A breast biopsy is a procedure in which breast cells are removed and examined by a pathologist for the presence of cancer. Our physicians offer several minimally invasive techniques for a breast biopsy and discuss which options are most appropriate for the patient.
This program is designed for patients who may be at increased risk for breast and ovarian cancer due to family history. Genetic counseling can help patients assess their risk and understand what they can do to reduce their risk for cancer. Genetic testing may also be offered.
Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia offers a full array of patient education programs, support groups and one-on-one patient outreach to help women and their families cope with breast cancer.
