Breast Cancer

We understand that a breast cancer diagnosis can be frightening. That's why we have an entire team devoted to you and your physical, emotional, spiritual and social needs during this time.

In addition to the region's most recognized breast surgeons and radiation oncologists, our breast cancer team includes medical oncologists through our partnership with OHSU, nurse navigators to help support and guide you through treatment, and specialists in survivorship and complementary therapies from the Legacy Cancer Healing Center. 

Our goal is to help women and men with breast cancer go on to lead productive lives as cancer survivors.
