Breast Cancer Clinic

More than 200,000 new cases of breast cancer are diagnosed each year.

The good news is that with early, accurate diagnosis and appropriate treatment, breast cancer survivors live improved, productive lives. 

When you enter treatment at UofL James Graham Brown Cancer Center, you are choosing the facility that offers the latest in surgical techniques, radiation therapy, drug therapies and clinical trials. 

UofL Brown Cancer Center provides the highest level of clinical cancer care in the region, access to the latest cancer research, and the benefits of a team-focused, multidisciplinary approach led by a nurse navigator.

Breast Cancer ClinicWe mean that the clinical plan for each patient is:

Customized – you are not a case; you are a patient, and each individual’s care is tailored to the needs of the patient 

Comprehensive – we consider the physical, emotional, psychological and social needs of each patient to ensure holistic care that provides the best care and outcomes possible 

Coordinated – as your multidisciplinary breast cancer team, all the physicians and specialists who are providing your treatment meet for a team conference to synthesize their efforts 

Each member of your clinical team meets together in one room to collaborate and bring the best knowledge to the table to discuss your diagnosis and determine the best course of treatment moving forward. This approach ensures that each and every patient receives the ideal combination of treatments and therapies. 

Your highly-trained multidisciplinary team of physicians may include a breast radiologist, pathologist, medical oncologist, surgical oncologist, and a radiation oncologist. Each of them are sub-subspecialists in their field, meaning they’ve studied not only their specific treatment of cancer, but they’ve studied it for specifically for breast cancer. All we do all day long is breast cancer. That means we have more expertise and knowledge on YOUR specific type of breast cancer, and we devise a treatment plan that’s right for you.

But because we know cancer treatment is not just about medical care, it’s about patients – your team will include a nurse navigator who coordinates all aspects of your care. It may also include psychologists, social workers, pharmacists, nutritionists, rehabilitation specialists and other appropriate medical professionals.   

In addition, our breast oncology nurses will care for you before, during, and after treatment; help manage cancer trials; and educate you about what to expect when you go home from the hospital. They also communicate with your family members and other members of your support team to address their needs and concerns.
