BREAST BIOPSIES & PROCEDURES

Stereotactic core needle biopsy (SCNB) is a core biopsy that uses X-rays and computer coordinates. It offers a groundbreaking alternative to standard, open surgical biopsy. SCNB procedures are performed in an outpatient setting using local anesthesia. During this procedure, small samples of tissue are removed from the breast for analysis using a hollow needle. This revolutionary diagnostic procedure is less invasive, less painful, and less costly than traditional surgical biopsy.

Prior to surgery, a radiologist localizes the area in the breast to be biopsied by inserting a guidewire. The guidewire “hooks” around the area in the breast to be biopsied. The patient is then immediately transported to the Operating Room, where the surgeon makes an incision in the breast following the guidewire and accurately removes the targeted breast tissue.
Ultrasound-guided breast biopsy is useful when suspicious changes are detected through mammograms and ultrasounds, but no abnormality can be felt during the breast exam. This minimally invasive procedure involves no exposure to radiation, is performed in an outpatient setting, and takes less time than a traditional surgical biopsy.
Cryoablation is an FDA-approved treatment for breast fibroadenomas (non-cancerous breast tumors) and is an alternative to open surgery. It uses extreme cold to completely destroy tissue. This simple, ultrasound-guided procedure can address the anxiety of living with an uncomfortable tumor. With cryoablation, the size and shape of your breast will not be affected as the treated tissue is gradually reabsorbed.

WOMEN’S HEALTH CENTER SUPPORT AND RESOURCES

The Women’s Health Center has dedicated nurses who understand that prompt results ease anxiety. They help guide women through the screenings, and, if necessary, any further diagnostic tests. Our nurses follow up with physicians to ensure receipt of patient test results and with each patient after testing.

A nurse is available to address any questions you may have during your visit or later. Health resources covering key health topics such as breast health, PMS, menopause, osteoporosis, and nutrition are also available through the Women’s Health Center.

SPA TREAT WITH ANNUAL MAMMOGRAM

Our Women’s Health Center has teamed up with Hand & Stone Spa to offer women a special gift. When you get a mammogram at CentraState, you will also receive $50 off a one-hour, regularly-priced, massage or facial at Hand & Stone Spa in Howell, Manalapan, or East Windsor.

Simply request an appointment with an OBGYN for your prescription. Then call us at 732-294-2778 or request a mammogram appointment online.
