Our world-class hospital offers advanced treatments and diagnostic tools and cutting-edge technologies, all in one location. Each patient is assigned a multidisciplinary team of experts dedicated to treating his or her cancer while also helping to manage side effects and maintain quality of life.

As a patient at Eastern, your care team will be led by a medical oncologist, who will design and deliver a treatment plan tailored to your needs and goals. Your care team will include clinicians who commit their time to answering your questions and walking with you through your cancer journey—from your first visit to your diagnostic tests, treatment visits and follow-up appointments.

The Breast Cancer Center in Philadelphia

At the Breast Cancer Center in Philadelphia, our multidisciplinary breast cancer experts work side by side, committed to a single mission—treating breast cancer patients. Your care team, led by your medical oncologist, will offer treatment options based on your specific breast cancer type, stage and treatment goals.

We know how important it is to have a team of experienced clinicians focused exclusively on your breast cancer type. Our breast center doctors have training and experience in treating a wide range of breast cancer types and subtypes, from triple-negative and HER2-positive cancers to metastatic disease and rare cases like male breast cancer and Paget’s disease of the breast. Depending on your cancer type, stage and other factors, your treatment plan may include surgical procedures, such as a lumpectomy or mastectomy, and oncoplastic reconstruction options to help you restore your breasts to a natural shape. If your care plan includes chemotherapy, hormone therapy, radiation therapy or targeted therapy, the Breast Cancer Center team has a wide range of state-of-the-art tools and technologies available to personalize your treatment regimen. We also offer genomic tumor assessments to qualified patients, if we believe the tests may help identify treatment options not previously considered. Your oncologist will help determine if you are a candidate for genomic testing.

Our cancer experts also recognize that breast cancer patients often experience side effects, including appetite loss, nausea, pain, neuropathy and fatigue. Managing these side effects may be critical to helping you maintain your overall well-being, so you are better able to stay on your treatment plan. To help address breast cancer-related side effects, your team may include supportive care experts in nutrition therapy, pain management, spiritual support and other services, collaborating to design a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs and goals.

State-of-the-art treatments

With so many cancer treatment options available, our patients face many decisions regarding their care. At Eastern, you'll find innovative treatments and technologies—all under one roof. Our cancer experts use sophisticated diagnostic tools and state-of-the-art equipment and techniques to treat all types of cancer.

Patients who meet certain criteria may benefit from advanced genomic testing, which is used to help identify specific mutations in a tumor and match them to treatments that may not have otherwise been considered.

Depending on your cancer type and other factors, our medical oncologists may recommend immunotherapy drugs, which are designed to trigger the immune system to fight cancer.

At Eastern, our patients are also participating in a number of clinical trials, including the American Society of Clinical Oncology’s TAPUR study, which aims to improve our understanding of how commercially available anti-cancer drugs perform on a broader range of cancers, by matching the drugs to tumors with specific genomic mutations that the drugs are designed to target.
