Coordinated Breast Care
Midlands Clinic Coordinated Breast Care
Through our partnership with the June E. Nylen Cancer Center, Midlands Coordinated Breast Care provides inclusive breast cancer care for all aspects of treatment, from diagnosis to reconstruction and healing. You have enough to worry about, that’s why we make our Coordinated Breast Care easy on you.
Barb Hansen, our breast care coordinator, will speak with you first to set up all consultations and appointments, from surgery to oncology to reconstruction, if needed.
After your visit with your general surgeon, oncologist, and plastic surgeon, we meet with the entire multi-disciplinary team to discuss your case. After reviewing all available information, we’ll devise your best treatment plan.
“Everyone feels free to weigh in and discuss options for the patient. It’s all about options and giving the patient the right information for what needs to be done,” says Breast Care Coordinator, Barb Hansen.
This teamwork eliminates confusion and stress, streamlines the treatment process, and puts you on the path to healing with a specific road map in place.
At Midlands Clinic, you’ll never be alone with breast cancer. You’ll be with the best.
