It has been reported one in eight American women will battle breast cancer during their lifetime. And studies show the best defense against breast cancer is early detection. With this in mind, Carson Tahoe is excited to announce the grand opening of a new comprehensive breast exam center.
The new center, opening in August, will offer patients easy access to the latest breast imaging and diagnostics services currently available in the region.
The Carson Tahoe Breast Center is located in North Carson City on the Carson Tahoe Medical Campus, inside Sierra Surgery.
This innovative patient-centered model of care features 3-D Tomosynthesis Mammography, the most advanced form of diagnostic tests available for breast cancer screening. This leading-edge technology is also vital for women with dense breast tissue as it sees beyond the dense tissue to find hidden tumors. Additional services include: Breast MRI, Breast Ultrasound, Breast Biopsy, and Dexa Bone Density, all in an ultra-modern healing environment.
“We are thrilled to offer this essential service to our community,” said Michelle Joy, vice president and chief operating officer at Carson Tahoe Health. “The center provides patients with a seamless integration of preventive and diagnostic services in a tranquil, compassionate setting. We feel very fortunate to have the unique opportunity to provide state-of-the-art care, close to home.”
Carson Tahoe also recently added 3-D Tomosynthesis Mammography technology at Minden Medical Center to benefit Douglas County patients.
A grand opening celebration, open to the community, is scheduled from 5 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 11 at Sierra Surgery, 1400 Medical Parkway.
