Breast Cancer Care

Leading breast cancer specialists. Close to you.

With breast cancer, where you get treated matters. From diagnosis to treatment, BCH provides one of the most comprehensive breast cancer programs in Northern Colorado. Our breast center is fully accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. A center that achieves NAPBC accreditation offers its patients every significant advantage in their battle against breast disease.

The hallmarks of our acclaimed breast cancer program are:

  • Experienced physicians who collectively coordinate individualized treatment plans
  • A Breast Health Navigator, an experienced oncology nurse who provides personalized guidance through treatment and recovery
  • The latest advances in diagnostic technology.
  • Access to advanced radiation therapy and clinical trials of new cancer fighting drugs
  • Extensive rehabilitation, integrative care and support services

Comprehensive and Coordinated Care

Each week, doctors specializing in medical oncology, radiation oncology, radiology, surgery, plastic surgery and pathology hold multidisciplinary meetings to jointly develop individualized treatment plans for every newly diagnosed patient. They are joined by other members of our care team. The collective expertise of all these clinical professionals helps ensure that each patient receives optimal care.

Inpatient cancer care is provided at Foothills Hospital, where experienced and specially trained nurses provide personalized care to acutely ill cancer patients and their families. In the nearby Tebo Family Medical Building, we provide optimal access to a wide range of outpatient treatments.

Breast cancer patients also benefit from our Center for Integrative Care, where they can take advantage of many complementary therapies, such as massage and acupuncture, which can make the journey through healing and recovery easier.

  • Digital Mammography
