Vital healthcare procedures, including those unrelated to COVID-19, should not be ignored at this time.

Minimally invasive breast procedures
If a breast cancer screening detects suspicious breast tissue, we offer minimally invasive surgery options and surgical consultations.
Some of the minimally invasive procedures we offer to diagnose breast abnormalities include:
- Sterotactic biopsy—A minimally invasive procedure in which suspicious breast tissue is removed and examined by a pathologist
- Ultrasound-guided biopsy/cyst aspiration—A minimally invasive procedure which uses ultrasound technology (sound waves), to locate and drain a cyst or to obtain a tissue sample for additional diagnosis.
