Abstract Breast cancer management requires a multidisciplinary approach that is tailored to the patient's stage at presentation, desire for breast conservation or reconstruction, estimation of risk of recurrence, and assessment of the benefits and toxicities of potential adjuvant therapies. At the Lahey Clinic Medical Center, breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiation oncologists, and medical oncologists staff the Breast Cancer Treatment Clinic, and work closely together to formulate treatment plans that will optimize the likelihood for cure with an acceptable cosmetic result. This involves careful preoperative work-up, surgical axillary staging, breast irradiation in the setting of breast conservation, and selection of chemotherapy or hormonal therapy if appropriate. Newer aspects of breast cancer care, including sentinal lymph node biopsy, postmastectomy radiation therapy, expanded use of hormonal therapy in younger women, new agents and chemotherapy combinations, and autogenous reconstruction techniques, have become an essential part of the multidisciplinary clinic approach.
