Piedmont Columbus Regional Breast Surgery offers comprehensive breast care with individualized breast surgery treatment options tailored to your specific breast diagnosis.

Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy (SLNB)

A surgical technique that assesses whether breast cancer has spread to lymph nodes in your armpit area (axilla). A SLNB identifies the nodes most likely to contain cancerous cells and these lymph nodes are removed and evaluated. This procedure is necessary in most breast cancer diagnoses in order to facilitate an accurate staging of cancer.

Excisional Biopsy

Breast diagnoses that often require excisional biopsies include atypical ductal hyperplasia, atypical lobular hyperplasia, lobular carcinoma in-situ, intraductal papilloma, radial scar, etc.

Breast-Conserving Surgery (Lumpectomy or Partial Mastectomy)

During a lumpectomy (aka partial mastectomy), our surgeon removes the tumor and a small amount of surrounding tissue, rather than the entire breast. Following a lumpectomy, many, but not all, women will need radiation and/or chemotherapy to eradicate any possible remaining cancer cells in the breast/body. If chemotherapy is needed, it generally starts before radiation.


There are numerous types of mastectomy options; many of which no longer leave a patient with a flat chest.

  • Simple/Total Mastectomy: the classic flat chest mastectomy (requires no reconstruction)
  • Skin-Sparing Mastectomy (SSM): (requires simultaneous reconstruction by a plastic surgeon)
  • Nipple and Skin Sparing Mastectomy (NASM):(requires simultaneous reconstruction by a plastic surgeon)

Breast Reconstruction

  • Autologous Tissue Flaps
  • Implants

Prophylactic Mastectomy

For those patients with high hereditary/genetic risk, our breast surgery specialists help you determine whether this approach is best suited for your situation and needs.
