Why You Should Trust Nebraska Medicine for Your Breast Cancer Care
Care Personalized to You
One Day, One Plan is our unique approach to breast cancer consultation and second opinions. When you arrive for an appointment, you see all of the specialists required for that visit all in the same day, in one setting. This approach saves you time and helps eliminate duplication of tests and services. More importantly, however, One Day, One Plan puts you in the room with a multitude of specialists who work with you to build a plan that is based on your goals and personal preferences.
Breast cancer patients have numerous treatment options available to them. Our specialists help you navigate through these choices by working collaboratively with you to understand your personal preferences. Your treatment plan may include chemotherapy, surgical options such as mastectomy, lumpectomy and the emerging options of oncoplastics breast surgery and DIEP breast reconstructive surgery, as well as radiation therapy and targeted therapies.
Access to the Newest Treatments and Clinical Trials
Our specialists use current treatments and advanced therapies to improve the outcomes for many breast cancer patients. Genetic testing and advanced reconstructive surgery are also an integral part of our treatment plans. Each component of your plan is based on your personal preferences.
Many of our specialists are directly involved in research to find new treatments and cures for breast cancer. This affords our doctors the opportunity to take part in some of the most current clinical trials, giving you early access to the newest drugs and most cutting-edge treatment options before they become widely available.
Most Advanced Diagnostic Tools
As part of your evaluation, all outside films and mammograms are re-reviewed by a specialized breast radiologist.
We offer our services at locations throughout the Omaha area and Southwest Iowa. Patients undergoing cancer treatment at Nebraska Medicine Health Network have access to our 24/7 Infusion Center at the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center, which serves as both a treatment center and 24/7 urgent care-type facility, making it a rare offering in the region.
Holistic Care for Your Personal Needs
Addressing your physical, educational, emotional and spiritual needs are important aspects of providing a more holistic approach to care. We offer a host of amenities and supportive services to help meet your complete needs. Once you've gotten past your breast cancer, our Survivorship Clinic is designed to help you deal with the emotional and physical challenges cancer can leave behind, such as fear of seeing your cancer return, along with physical and medical long-term side effects of the cancer.
