Dr. Skip Granai, director of the Program in Women's Oncology, talks about the importance of treating the whole patient through Women & Infants Integrative Care Program. The program provides patients and their caregiver the opportunity to receive therapies alike reiki, yoga, accupncture, and massage to improve their quality of life.
Dr. Jennifer Gass talks about oncoplastic surgery, which combines plastic surgery techniques with traditional procedures for removing cancerous tissue from the breast to leave a woman with a more normal shaped breast. “Overall, the goal of oncoplastic surgery is to improve the patient’s journey through survivorship,” Gass said. “We want women to look at themselves with the pride they deserve, rather than looking at a scar as if it were a badge of courage."
