The Breast Care Program at BMH
Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the United States. In fact, one in eight women in the U.S. develops some form of breast cancer over their lifetime. And it’s one of the leading causes of death in women over 40.
The Breast Care Program at Brattleboro Memorial Hospital exemplifies BMH’s commitment to our patients’ health throughout the continuum, from advanced diagnostics and screening tools to genetic testing and the latest surgical techniques.
As part of the large and growing field dedicated to identifying and caring for people at high risk of developing breast cancer, our Cancer Risk and Genetics Program provides:
- breast cancer risk assessment
- high risk screening
- prevention therapy and counseling.
Referrals to certified genetic counselors and genetic testing are provided for those individuals who are at high risk.
Modern medicine now offers breast cancer patients more treatment options and more hope for survival than ever before.
A variety of technologically advanced techniques are available through the Breast Care Program. We also provide care strategies selected for each woman and implemented by multidisciplinary teams of care providers led by Stephen Fox, MD of Brattleboro General Surgery.
