Hidden Scar™ Breast Cancer Surgery

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.

Hidden Scar Center of ExcellenceWe 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.

Our Hidden Scar Surgeons

Our surgeons are two of only three in Massachusetts – two of only 51 surgeons in the country – certified in Hidden Scar Surgery. 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 one of our surgeons, please contact either of our Women's Health Centers.

Hidden Scar Procedures

At Cape Cod Healthcare, we provide patients with Hidden Scar Lumpectomy and Hidden Scar Nipple Sparing Mastectomy procedures. Our surgeons have been extensively trained in these Hidden Scar procedures to ensure that you have the best surgical outcome.
