If surgery is recommended to remove a benign or cancerous tumor, our goal is to conserve breast tissue and skin for satisfactory reconstruction. Penn State Hershey breast surgeons are skilled in the latest minimally invasive techniques, including sentinel node biopsies, cryoablation, and skin sparing mastectomies. If reconstruction following a mastectomy is desired, we work closely with plastic surgeons who specialize in breast reconstruction. The most contemporary techniques yield the best cosmetic results without compromising care. In most cases, reconstruction can occur at the same time as surgery.
