Lumpectomy and radiation
Depending on the tumor location and size, a lumpectomy may be an option for you. A lumpectomy involves having a breast surgeon remove the tumor during a short day surgery. Often times, patients undergoing this type of surgery require radiation to the affected breast. In this scenario, patients typically do not need a plastic surgeon because the breast has been preserved and breast reconstruction is not necessary.

Note about these procedures: When patients come in for a new patient consult, Dr. Burgess will review the various procedures she performs as well as discuss the other options available to patients. She will help guide you towards the reconstructive surgery that most compliments your aesthetic goals, as well as maintain close communication with your other physicians.
