Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy – removal of the first lymph node to which cancer cells are most likely to spread from a primary tumor.
Lumpectomy – the removal of a tumor and surrounding breast tissue.
Lumpectomy & Breast Lift – while performing a lumpectomy, the surgeon also performs a minor breast lift with hidden or small scars.
Lumpectomy & Breast Reduction – while performing a lumpectomy, the surgeon also performs breast reduction surgery.
Mastectomy – the total removal of the breast and possibly lymph nodes for examination.
Mastectomy & Breast Reconstruction – while performing a mastectomy, a surgeon also performs breast reconstruction surgery.
Lymphedema Monitoring & Treatment
Lymphedema is swelling caused by an excess of lymph fluid and is common after breast surgery. Prior to surgery, Dr. Schwaab sends all of his patients to be evaluated by a Certified Lymphedema Therapist who uses state of the art L-Dex technology to provide a pre-surgical baseline assessment for lymphedema. The same technology is used to monitor for lymphedema in the postoperative period so therapy can be initiated if needed.
Post-Surgical Physical Therapy
Dr. Schwaab’s breast care philosophy includes enabling patients to return back to normal activities. Patients experiencing pain or loss of movement from the surgery or scarring, are referred to physical therapy.
