Breast Cancer Care in the Northern Suburbs

Northwestern Medicine Lake Forest Hospital offers comprehensive breast care with the Posy Krehbiel Breast Care Center, located in Pavilion B, Women's Services. At the Breast Center, we pride ourselves on being a partner in a woman’s lifelong journey of breast care.

Providing more than clinical excellence, the Posy Krehbiel Breast Care Center provides sensitive and caring guidance for patients with breast cancer.

The Posy Krehbiel Breast Care Center is renowned for its comprehensive care and unparalleled support of women’s physical and emotional needs.

At the Breast Care Center, we pride ourselves on being a partner in a woman’s lifelong journey of breast care—which includes self-examinations, disease prevention, cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment option management, post-treatment healing and return to wellness. In fact, we’ve even developed more inclusive, detailed detection guidelines, based on our cancer specialists’ experience, for women at high, above-average and average risk.

We have many of the region’s leading, board-certified breast care specialists on our staff and are guided by a Medical Advisory Council of physicians. Our board-certified physicians, radiologists, nurses and technologists all have specialized skills for breast care screening and treatment. In fact, several of our radiologists have subspecialty training in Women’s Imaging, making them highly qualified to read and interpret breast images.

Their expertise is complemented by state-of-the-art technology and exceptional resources, such as:

  • ABUS (Automated Breast Ultrasound)
  • Advanced breast MRI
  • Digital mammography
  • Nurse navigators
  • PET/CT
  • 3D tomography mammography
