Our team uses evidence-based approaches, the latest research, and compassionate, patient-centered care to develop advanced treatment plans tailored to each patient for benign and malignant breast conditions.
As part of the Johns Hopkins Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center, members of the multidisciplinary team including surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, advanced practice providers, nurses, and patient navigators, offer a full range of services to decrease the emotional and physical impact of a breast cancer diagnosis through innovative techniques such as tissue rearrangement to reduce cosmetic defects associated with breast surgery.In addition, Johns Hopkins offers support to the newly diagnosed -a special peer-to-peer support program. The patient navigator will connect you with a breast cancer survivor volunteer. This matching program is offered to John Hopkins breast cancer patients.
“We feel incredibly blessed to have received a grant to partially fund the Johns Hopkins breast health/breast cancer navigation program. When someone hears those words “you have breast cancer” they are at the most frightened and vulnerable time of their life. Having a patient navigator who is also a breast cancer survivor for navigation, support, education, and follow up is an incredible resource for patients to have. A patient navigator is a vision of hope, a touchstone through the patient’s diagnosis and treatment.” — Lillie Shockney, RN, BS, MAS, HON-ONN-CG, University Distinguished Service Professor of Breast Cancer, Professor of Surgery, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine
