This is a multidisciplinary team that provides individualized, state-of-the-art diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer. The guiding principles of the program are quality, innovation, teamwork, service, and accountability.
Patients who require screening and diagnosis are seen at the WVU Cancer Institute’s Betty Puskar Breast Care Center. Services include screening, early detection, and diagnostic imaging services. Our breast-specific radiologists are experts in the diagnosis of breast abnormalities, whether benign or malignant.
Our unique breast cancer center allows patients to see breast surgeons and oncologists, genetic counselors, social workers, and clinical trial specialists without having to make multiple appointments, allowing the entire cancer treatment process to begin sooner and patients to get on the road to recovery faster. This team of specialists, along with other healthcare workers, come together to discuss recommendations and create an individualized, tailored treatment plan.
