Breast Surgery Overview

There are several types of breast surgery. Your specialized breast surgeon will discuss your surgery options with you. Whether it’s a nonsurgical biopsy, treatment of an infection or an advanced surgical procedure, our board-certified surgeons work side-by-side with you to deliver the most compassionate and personalized care.

Breast Health Centers

The Breast Health Centers in the Western Suburbs have received a number of special designations in the care of patients with breast disease and breast cancer, marking us as one of the top programs in the region. 

Both Northwestern Medicine Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) and Northwestern Medicine Delnor Hospital are proud to be certified Breast Centers of Excellence. CDH and Delnor Hospital are also recognized by the prestigious National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) through the American College of Surgeons. 

This accreditation is given to centers that undergo a rigorous evaluation process, and comply with stringent NAPBC standards for treating women diagnosed with a wide variety of breast disease. A breast center that achieves NAPBC accreditation has demonstrated a firm commitment to offering its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.

Behind these designations is a deep and enduring commitment to women’s health, one that gives you the peace of mind knowing that talented, experienced caregivers are here to guide you with knowledge, compassion, respect and education to help you make the best decisions about your own care.
