Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery

For diagnosed patients, call Dr. Dalton at 508-775-1984.

When surgery is required to treat breast cancer, Cape Cod Healthcare’s expert physicians are at the forefront of providing the most advanced procedures, focused on treating the whole patient.

We are the first in Massachusetts to offer Hidden Scar™ Breast Cancer Surgery, an advanced approach to breast cancer care. In Hidden Scar surgery, a single incision is made along the natural folds of the skin to remove cancerous tissue, sparing the nipple, areola and surrounding breast tissue.

This procedure minimizes scarring and helps to preserve the natural breast shape with the aim of preserving a woman’s physical appearance and minimizing the emotional impact of breast surgery.

Kathryn Dalton, DO is one of only two surgeons in Massachusetts -- one of only 51 surgeons in the country -- certified in Hidden Scar Surgery. Dr. Dalton now trains other surgeons to perform this advanced procedure. Cape Cod Healthcare is the only healthcare system in the state to be certified as a Hidden Scar Center of Excellence.

If you have been diagnosed with breast cancer and wish to meet with Dr. Dalton, please contact her at 508-775-1984.
