Each year, approximately 253,000 women are diagnosed with breast cancer that requires surgery. Many women are unaware of all the surgical options available, including less invasive approaches that can help restore their self-image and allow them to begin the emotional healing process. Five-year survival rates for breast cancer are high but the surgery scars left behind are more than a physical reminder. They impact confidence, intimacy and mental wellbeing for many women. But living with noticeable scars after surgery is no longer necessary. Hidden Scar breast cancer surgery allows the surgeon to remove the cancerous tissue through a single incision made in a hidden area, preserving the natural shape of the breast while reducing visible scarring. Patients who undergo this approach experience optimal clinical and cosmetic outcomes, and are at no higher risk of recurrence than patients who undergo any other surgical technique. A breast cancer diagnosis is difficult enough, The Center for Cancer and Blood Disorders is committed to enabling our surgeons to perform complex, in-demand surgeries with greater confidence, and give more women access to transformative options. Performing breast cancer surgery through a smaller incision requires consistent illumination throughout the surgical cavity, so surgeons can clearly see and effectively remove the tumor. Therefore, we’re using Stryker’s Intelligent Photonics technology to improve visibility during procedures such as lumpectomy and nipple-sparing mastectomy.
