Breast Care

About 1 in 8 women will develop breast cancer in her lifetime. The largest single hospital program in Atlanta, more cases of breast cancer are diagnosed and treated at Northside Hospital than any other hospital in the Southeast. The strength of Northside's Breast Care Program is that it offers a multidisciplinary team of dedicated, specially trained professionals in addition to compassionate support. At Northside, we treat more than a woman's cancer, we treat the whole woman. Northside's Breast Care Program offers women the latest in technology and specialized expertise, while emphasizing compassionate care and support. Northside provides extensive education and resources to help a woman reduce her risk and maintain good breast health.

Patients who are diagnosed with breast cancer at Northside benefit from personalized care.  Northside offers breast care surgery suites, breast nurse navigators and A Woman’s Place, a boutique offering specialty healthcare products just for women.

A multidisciplinary team works with patients to further individualize care. Northside Hospital is one of the few facilities in the country to conduct breast care conferences. During these conferences, specialists collaborate on cancer cases, special procedures, emerging technologies, and research advancements. This shared knowledge results in excellent care.

In 2010, the Program was awarded a three-year/full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons, and was designated a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
