The breast cancer is, in many cases, diagnosed, staged and treated through several procedures: breast surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy or hormone therapy. The nonsurgical treatments (chemotherapy, radiation therapy and hormone therapy) can be administered before the breast cancer surgery (as a neoadjuvant therapy) or after the breast cancer surgery (as an adjuvant therapy) with the purpose of preventing cancer growth, spread or recurrence.
Planning to manage some anticipated side effects (of the surgery) takes place early in the treatment planning process. Teams of nutritionists, rehabilitation therapists and naturopathic clinicians collaborate with the surgical oncologist to assist patient’s healing and quality of life. The reconstructive surgeons perform procedures (with the goal of restoring the breast(s)’ appearance and functionality) whenever this is needed.
Based on the patient’s individual preferences, the surgeons can also perform breast-conserving surgery. As the breast cancer surgery can be often an overwhelming and complex personal decision, the clinic’s care team will assist and help the patient understand all of the breast cancer surgery options. Afterwards, the patient can decide on a customized treatment plan.
Apart from the physical effects, breast cancer surgery can have psychological and social consequences. All of these modifications can affect the patient’s sense of sexuality. Therefore, the integrated care team will address all of these issues and help the patient enhance her well-being all along the process (before, during and after the surgery).
