For patients who need surgery to treat their breast cancer, there are a variety of options to best meet their physical and emotional needs. Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center offers board-certified surgical specialists who works closely with the Hunterdon Womena??s Imaging Center. With early detection, most women are candidates for a lumpectomy, where the surgeon removes only the lump and a margin of tissue around it, sparing the breast. Patients who are not a candidate for, or chose not to have lumpectomy, may have a mastectomy, which is removal of the entire breast.
