Advanced cancer treatment, when and where you need it.

Through our partnership with Roswell Park Cancer Care, you can receive world-class breast cancer treatment from a team of experts. Your care team might include medical oncologists from Roswell Park as well as radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, nurses, nutritionists and more here at Ellis Medicine.

These experienced providers work together to ensure your treatment plan is right for you and your type of cancer. They meet regularly to discuss their patients’ cases so that everyone on the team is up-to-date and ready to care for you, and the most advanced treatment options available.

The type of treatment you need depends on what type of breast cancer you have, how much it has grown or spread, and your general health.

What to Expect During Treatment

The first goal of your treatment will be to treat the cancerous tumor in the breast itself. Usually, that means you’ll have surgery to remove the tumor and radiation therapy to destroy any remaining cancer cells. Ellis Medicine offers a full range of surgical options from breast-conserving lumpectomy to radical mastectomy with advanced reconstructive surgery. Your surgeon will discuss the best options for you.

Next, your treatment will focus on destroying any cancer cells that may have gone to other parts of your body. If your cancer has spread, chemotherapy delivers medicine to kill cancer wherever it is in your body, and other targeted therapies also attack cancer cells specifically. It’s important to get rid of all cancer cells so it doesn’t come back. Hormone therapy can be used to reduce the risk of the cancer returning.

No matter where you are in your treatment, Ellis Medicine is here to support you and answer any questions you have.
