Upstate Breast Care Center Helping CNY Community

Doctors Discuss Advances in Surgery for Breast Cancer

The Upstate Breast Care Center is helping Central New Yorkers with a wide range of breast conditions. Dr. Mary Ellen Greco and Dr. Kristine Keeney stopped by Bridge Street to discuss the center's continued work in the community and highlight a technique that they are offering to make the fight against breast cancer easier.

Both Dr. Greco and Dr. Keeney are exclusively breast surgeons and are trained in the hidden scar surgery technique. This allows cancerous tissue to be removed through a single incision made in an inconspicuous area and helps minimize visible scarring and therefore ease the emotional impact of surgery. Treatment of breast cancer has come so far in recent years and both doctors are dedicated to continuing those advancements.

The center is completely designed to handle any breast issue in an expedited and efficient manner. They will see any patient with a new cancer diagnosis within 48 hours or any new mass that has been discovered. 
The close proximity of the Wellspring Imaging Center is also a tool that the center has working to it's advantage. There is ultrasound technology as well as 3D imaging that is truly the best way to screen for breast cancer and has become a game-changer in detection.

The hashtag #examyourmams stresses the importance of doing a self check once a month so that if there is a problem, it's caught early. Never hesitate to get something checked that seems not normal.

The Upstate Breast Care Center is located on Upstate's Community Campus at 4900 Broad Road in Syracuse. It is in the Physicians Office Building South in  Suite 1D. Their phone number is (315) 492-5660 and you can find more information on them online at upstate.edu/community/services/breast_center.
