Breast Cancer Care at Loyola

If you have breast cancer, then turn to our nationally recognized staff of breast cancer specialists at Loyola's Breast Oncology Center within the Cardinal Bernardin Cancer Center. Our comprehensive approach means you have access to an experienced team of surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and nurses.

One Visit, One Location for Comprehensive Breast Cancer Care

Loyola is one of a select group of institutions nationally that offers a one-visit, team approach for patients who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. In just one visit, you'll meet with a medical team, including the surgical, medical and radiation oncologists. That same day, our experts meet in the Patient Care Review Session to collaborate on an overall evaluation and provide treatment recommendations. Radiologists, pathologists and research nurses also are part of the meeting. After a consensus opinion of the best treatment approach is reached, the team will again meet with you that same day to convey this consensus to you and your family. Being at Loyola means that you will have access to leading-edge treatments, while Loyola's Breast Research Program works to provide access to a broad menu of national and international clinical trials. You can browse the trials on this website.

Compassionate Patient Care

To support your physical, emotional and spiritual needs, our nursing staff will connect you with experienced social workers, pastoral care providers, psychologists, dieticians and genetic counselors through the Coleman Foundation Image Renewal Center.
