Comprehensive breast care program

Medical Team

MUSC Hollings Cancer Center's Comprehensive Breast Care team works together to treat the physical and emotional needs of each breast cancer patient, providing guidance from diagnosis through treatment and evaluation.  Our South Carolina breast reconstruction surgeons and breast cancer doctors review individual cases every week during Breast Tumor Board Meetings, make recommendations and schedule appointments to accommodate the patient’s comfort and convenience. Each of our breast cancer doctors, breast reconstruction surgeons, and every other member of our team displays this level of thoroughness and patient focus, which is what makes our care unique.
