Yale Medicine’s Breast Cancer Radiotherapy program is one of the most widely recognized programs in the world. Ours was one of the first facilities in the country to offer breast-conserving surgery followed by radiation therapy. Unlike a mastectomy that removes the entire breast, breast-conserving surgery removes only the affected breast tissue, and the radiation that follows can be performed on an intact breast.
We offer the complete spectrum of breast cancer radiation oncology services, including breast-conserving surgery followed by radiation, radiation following mastectomy, and radiation for treatment of metastasis or for cancer that has spread. Our team of physicians, physicists, dosimetrists and radiation therapists offers the latest technologies in the delivery of radiation for breast cancer, including conventional external beam radiation, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), deep inspiration breath hold (DIBH) and partial breast irradiation.
