Stanford Breast Cancer Program

At Stanford, our Breast Cancer physicians and researchers have been instrumental in developing many of the leading technologies used to diagnose and treat breast cancer today. Our program is a major referral center for patients across the country. This expertise allows us to offer you personalized treatment options based on the most recent clinical and research data available.

Stanford's Breast Cancer program is located in the new Women's Cancer Center, a warm and welcoming facility that unites clinicians, researchers and health care professionals in a nurturing environment. Program highlights include:

  • Collaborative team-based care for each patient
  • Superior diagnostic capabilities, including 3D mammography technology (called tomosynthesis)
  • Advanced treatment options, including partial breast irradiation using IORT
  • Extensive support services
  • Integrated, innovative research to help improve our understanding of breast cancer, develop new tools for early detection, and create more effective treatments
