World-Class Breast Cancer Treatment

At Tampa General, we diagnose and treat breast cancer every day with a multidisciplinary team dedicated to fast turnaround times for appointments. In many cases, we can provide same-day results and treatments, from biopsies to minimally invasive breast interventions and excisions performed on an outpatient basis.

Surgical Expertise

The Breast Cancer Center is among the highest volume programs in the state for treating breast cancer patients who require a hospital stay. Our board-certified breast surgeons perform a variety of high-tech, minimally invasive breast cancer procedures with the goal of sparing as much breast tissue as possible and removing all traces of cancer.

Our procedures include oncoplastic surgery and innovative partial breast radiation. In addition, we offer non-invasive axillary nodal staging, a novel staging technique that can be performed without going to the operating room. Our experts are the only ones in the world performing this technique.

Breast Cancer Care Navigators

Your breast cancer health care journey will be led by dedicated care navigators to support and inform you and your family throughout the process. To help make everything as smooth as possible, we expedite wait times between appointments – meaning you’ll be seen sooner and benefit from leading breast diagnostic technology and treatments faster. 


Tampa Breast Health Center

Our Breast Health Center is designed to provide patients with a partner every step of their cancer journey providing clinical excellence and compassionate care. The center offers screenings and diagnostic testing, including 3D mammography, ultrasounds, biopsies and other in-office procedures and treatments under one room, including Molecular breast imaging (MBI), an advanced, FDA-approved imaging technology that is used to identify breast cancer in women with dense breast tissue.
