Available at the Breast Center is a full range of
diagnostic services, including:

If your mammogram is abnormal...

In the event an abnormality is found in your mammogram, the Breast Center at Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital is the best place to be. Any further testing can be completed at the Breast Center, freeing you from the stress of having to visit several different facilities. Our breast radiologists will supervise the diagnostic evaluation and perform image-guided core needle biopsies if necessary.

If breast cancer is detected...

Rest assured, Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital offers Fort Bend County the only full-service oncology program. If breast cancer is detected, our Breast Care Navigator will coordinate your care and schedule your appointments with the appropriate physicians, including breast surgeons, reconstructive surgeons, oncologists and radiation oncologists. Our Breast Care Team will work closely with each other to ensure continuity of care.

If radiation is required...

Our renowned radiation oncologist relies on the latest technology and innovations to tailor a treatment program for each patient. For some patients, high-dose-rate (HDR) brachytherapy reduces the time needed for treatment to five days rather than six weeks. This therapy uses strategically placed catheters to deliver precise levels of radiation directly to the tumor site, which also helps protect surrounding breast tissue.

Another leading-edge therapy available is intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), an advanced mode of high-precision radiotherapy. It utilizes computer-controlled linear accelerators to deliver precise radiation doses.

Multidisciplinary Approach

Houston Methodist Sugar Land Hospital holds case reviews with the multidisciplinary Breast Care Team including, breast radiologists, pathologists, breast surgeons, oncologists, radiation oncologists, reconstructive surgeons, and a Breast Care Navigator. During a case review, the breast care team discusses newly diagnosed patients and creates personalized treatment plans. This service provides you with the comfort of knowing that you are being cared for by a team of specialized physicians who truly care.
