Our breast care team

Giving expert care to women facing breast diseases

“A whole team of skilled specialists dedicated solely to breast health is ready to care for you,” says Karen Kish, MD, Breast Surgeon at Mercy Fitzgerald.

This team may include doctors specializing in:

  • Imaging for breast issues
  • Breast surgery
  • Chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • Breast reconstruction

Customized care

This team will use its expertise to tailor treatments just for you. That’s crucial since one woman’s cancer—or other breast condition—can be very different from another’s.

You’ll have access to the latest treatments and imaging. In fact, Mercy Fitzgerald is a designated Breast Imaging Center of Excellence.

And you may even be able to take part in a clinical trial, Dr. Kish says. This is a research study that tests new treatments that aren’t yet widely available.

Still another plus: Our team includes a breast health nurse navigator. Among other things, she will answer your questions and help arrange appointments.

“One of our huge strengths is compassionate care,” Dr. Kish says. “We understand how anxious a woman may feel about any breast issue. And we provide emotional support from diagnosis through recovery. We help the whole woman.”
