Hidden Scar™ Breast Cancer Surgery
When your breast cancer care plan calls for surgery, Cape Cod Healthcare’s expert physicians are focused on treating the whole patient. We were the first in Massachusetts to offer Hidden Scar™ Breast Cancer Surgery. Breast surgeon Jill Oxley, MD, FACS is among the select surgeons in the state that are certified and trained in the Hidden Scar technique.
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 maintaining a woman’s physical appearance and minimizing the emotional impact of breast surgery.
Cape Cod Healthcare is the only healthcare system in the state to be certified as a Hidden Scar™ Center of Excellence. We provide patients with Hidden Scar Lumpectomy and Hidden Scar Nipple Sparing Mastectomy procedures.
