Leading experts in breast cancer

Massey’s breast cancer care is provided by the region’s largest and most comprehensive team of international leaders in breast health. Our surgical, medical and radiation oncologists work together with radiologists, pathologists and other specialists and health care professionals to coordinate each patient’s care.

Doctors at Massey have unparalleled knowledge and experience in treating breast cancer and breast disorders. As sub-specialists in breast cancer, we are specifically trained in and dedicated to the treatment of the most common form of cancer in women worldwide. Many of our doctors are also research scientists, continually investigating new treatment options and exploring ways to improve the patient experience. And as part of an academic medical center, our doctors are also professors, educating and training future generations of oncologists, surgeons and other health care professionals. The treatment, study and teaching of breast cancer position our doctors as the leading experts in the field.
