MammoSite

Another service provided by Dr. Basa is placement of the SAVI applicator and MammoSite for partial breast irradiation.

Partial breast irradiation allows women with early breast cancer to receive focused radiation over 5 days compared to the typical 6 weeks of radiation therapy. This speeds up the return to normal life activities. These treatment devices are known as Brachytherapy or internally-delivered radiation and is a technique that spares healthy tissue and treats only the tissue around your tumor cavity.

Cedar Park Surgeons strives to improve overall quality of life to our patients and give the highest level of care possible, so we also offer the BRAC Analysis Testing for our patients and can discuss your surgical options relating to the outcomes of patients’ tests.  To learn more about BRAC Genetic Testing visit http://www.bracnow.com. You can also fill out this survey to see if you should consider genetic testing for cancer. BRAC Family History Survey
