Cleveland Clinic Breast Program: Why We’re Different

The Cleveland Clinic Breast Program is unique because it follows the Cleveland Clinic multidisciplinary approach to medical care. The program serves as a model—an excellent example of how teams of specialists from all disciplines can work together for the good of the patient.

There is no other place in the world like Cleveland Clinic—and no better place to receive care. Our team approach is unique, and serves as the very fiber of Cleveland Clinic. We are a national and international resource and a driving force of medicine in this part of the country. Our structure allows us to offer world-class care and research.

The Cleveland Clinic Breast Program is different because of our dedication to the treatment of breast cancer. We have breast surgeons, breast specialists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, physician assistants, nurses, genetics counselors and administrative staff dedicated solely to the treatment of breast cancer.

The Cleveland Clinic Breast Program is different because of the scale of our program. Cleveland Clinic main campus is the nucleus of the Cleveland Clinic Health System, which relies on the specialized service of our Breast Program. This system is continually growing and expanding. The Breast Program is not only connected to this major growth and expansion, but is a major part of it. Women from all over Ohio and beyond are referred to our Breast Center for care. Unlike some healthcare facilities, our expertise increases at every level of care, rather than decreasing as the woman’s health becomes a greater concern. All aspects of therapy are available within our system. She stays within our system; we care for her through cancer treatment, as compassionately as possible, using state-of-the-art treatment strategies.
