Our Chicagoland breast cancer surgeons specialize in the following procedures to treat breast cancer:

  • Mastectomy, including simple, skin-sparing, nipple-sparing, modified mastectomy and radical mastectomy
  • Lymph node surgery, including axillary lymph node dissection and sentinel node surgery

Our surgical oncology team in Naperville and Elmhurst, including breast surgeon Christine Gresik, M.D., has expertise in breast cancer surgery. We’ll take time to listen to you and talk about what you can expect from surgery. We’ll also present possible options for reconstruction. Then we’ll work with you to develop a treatment plan that meets your personal goals.
