Breast and Bone Health
For women, and men too, breast and bone health is a major factor in your overall health. St. Luke's Breast and Bone Health is dedicated to providing you with professional, personalized care for all your breast and bone health needs. Our services are provided in a warm and relaxing setting, and are performed by experienced staff committed to making your experience with us as seamless and comfortable as possible.
St. Luke's Breast and Bone Health's team of specialists includes radiologists, technologists, sonographers, nurses, breast care coordinator, cancer risk counselor and a dedicated management team. St. Luke's Hospital Breast and Bone Health has recently been recognized as a Certified Quality Breast Center in the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program™. This distinguished honor represents a commitment by this breast center to provide the highest level of quality breast health care to patients in their community.
St. Luke's uses state-of-the-art technology, including digital mammography (Genius™ 3D MAMMOGRAPHY™), to screen for and diagnose breast health issues. Digital mammography is the newest technology available for early breast cancer detection and has many benefits, including higher detection rates in some patients, fewer recalls and lower doses of radiation.
In addition to mammograms, St. Luke's Breast and Bone Health also provides breast ultrasounds, biopsies, needle localizations and cyst aspirations. Screenings are available at our two convenient locations - in the PCI Medical Pavilion and on St. Luke's Marion Campus.
St. Luke's Hospital has been accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. Accreditation by the NAPBC is only given to those centers that have voluntarily committed to provide the highest level of quality breast care and that undergo a rigorous evaluation process and review of their performance.
Breast and Bone has been accredited by the American College of Radiology (ACR) as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence (BICOE)
Electron-based Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IOeRT)
Faster, convenient, more precise breast cancer treatment
You've heard the breast cancer diagnosis, and now you're ready for answers.
"In one procedure, women can have a cancer operation, radiation to the tumor bed and maintain optimal appearance and symmetry with the other breast. IOeRT is a concise, convenient and cost-effective treatment. This is true innovation," explains Dr. Robert Brimmer, of Physicians Clinic of Iowa surgeon.
