Breast Conservation Surgery (Surgical Biopsy, Lumpectomy, Nipple Exploration, Partial Mastectomy)
Breast conservation surgery for a benign or malignant breast lesion remains the cornerstone operation for the oncologic and general surgeon. Localization of non palpable lesions is performed with either a wire or radioactive seed but intraoperative ultrasound can be utilized for those with training to employ this approach. Oncoplastic techniques are becoming increasingly popular for excision of a breast malignancy.
