There are more than 2.5 million breast cancer survivors in the United States.
We want to see that number grow. And grow.
This is the impetus behind our gifts to establish Cedars-Sinai’s Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center—A Project of Women’s Guild at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute. Patients come here for a full range of the most advanced healthcare services for breast cancer and other breast-related diseases. This is also a leading center of research on new methods of breast cancer detection and treatment.
It all happens under the leadership of Edward H. Phillips, MD, and Armando E. Giuliano, MD—renowned surgeons, internationally known clinical researchers, and leading authorities on diseases of the breast. Patients receive comprehensive care from a multidisciplinary team that includes specialists in minimally invasive surgery. Patient education, cancer screening, genetic risk assessment and risk reduction, and reconstructive surgery are key components of the program.
And you couldn’t ask for a more healing environment. Breast cancer survivors helped design the center, so it reflects a rare level of sensitivity to patients’ needs.
