The Rex Comprehensive Breast Care Program is expanding!

The Rex Comprehensive Breast Care Program is expanding! We are proud to announce the opening of our new breast surgery clinic, Rex Breast Care Specialists. The clinic, an extension of Rex Surgical Specialists, is located in the same building as the Rex Breast Care Center at 3100 Duraleigh Road, Suite 205.

Rex Breast Care Specialists features board-certified surgeons, Dr. David Eddleman, Dr. Rachel Goble and Dr. Nancy Crowley. The clinic will be adding another fellowship-trained breast surgeon this summer as well. Combining their expertise with compassion, our surgeons focus on patients and their breast care needs in a calming, supportive atmosphere.

Our surgeons offer consultations, follow-up appointments, minimally invasive breast biopsies and coordination of comprehensive care for breast cancer and other complex breast problems. In addition to providing state-of-the-art breast cancer treatment, they treat many benign breast problems including breast cysts, nipple discharge, breast pain, breast lumps, mammographic abnormalities and patients with an elevated risk of developing breast cancer based on personal and family history.

Rex Breast Care Specialists is a seamless part of Rex’s Comprehensive Breast Care Program. Our breast surgeons also work closely with breast radiologists in the Rex Breast Imaging & Diagnostics Center and with physicians in the Rex Cancer Center. Patients at the clinic will receive a personalized treatment plan that may include some of the following services offered at Rex:

  • 3-D mammography
  • Screening and diagnostic digital mammography
  • Stereotactic breast biopsy
  • Bone-density testing
  • Ultrasound-guided needle biopsy
  • Breast ultrasound and MRI
  • Cyst aspiration
  • Lumpectomy, mastectomy and sentinel lymph node biopsy
  • Coordination with plastic surgeons for immediate breast reconstruction
  • Chemotherapy
  • Radiation therapy
  • Physical therapy, occupational therapy and lymphedema management
  • Participation in clinical trials
  • Guidance from nurse navigators
  • Counseling and nutrition services
  • Wellness and rehab support programs

All of these services will be linked with the surgical care offered at Rex Breast Care Specialists. ‘I’m excited about the addition of our new breast surgery clinic to the Rex Comprehensive Breast Care Program,’ said Dr. David Eddleman, Breast Surgery Medical Director. ‘Our patients can now experience the convenience of having their breast imaging, surgical evaluation and support all in one central location.’
