The specialist breast care team cover all aspects of breast care including treatment for benign breast disease and breast cancer. We use modern surgical techniques to provide excellent cancer treatment and promote rapid surgical recovery, with most of our patients going home on the same day as their surgery. This includes minimally invasive lymph node surgery, oncoplastic breast conserving surgery and some types of breast reconstruction.
Our service is delivered by a group of breast care specialists including breast surgeons, radiologists, specialist radiographers, oncologists, pathologists, breast care nurses and cancer support workers. We all work closely together and meet each week to discuss newly diagnosed patients. As a team we discuss individual treatment plans and ensure that these start as quickly as possible. Our patients are always at the centre of the decision making process.
We fully understand the emotional and physical impact that breast surgery can have and for this reason we offer a breast reconstruction service and our breast care nurse specialists who work across Musgrove Park Hospital in Taunton and Yeovil Hospital provide expert guidance and support whenever you need it.
