Sutter Takes Part in the Transformation of Breast Cancer Surgery in Northern California: ‘Moving Beyond Wires’ for Tumor Localization
SACRAMENTO, Calif.– Sutter Health, a not-for-profit, integrated healthcare network in Northern California, announced its collaboration with Cianna Medical and the SAVI SCOUT® Wire-Free Radar Breast Localization System—a wire-free, non-radioactive system used by hospitals in the U.S.
“At Mills-Peninsula Medical Center, this advanced technology has had an immediate and enormous positive impact for our patients undergoing the removal of breast lesions,” said Harriet Borofsky, M.D., medical director of Sutter’s Mills-Peninsula Breast Center. “This technology eliminates the need to place wires for localization on the day of surgery, which can decrease anxiety and procedure time, thus improving a patient’s overall experience.”
“At Sutter, we’re taking another step forward in helping transform healthcare,” said Lisa M. Guirguis, M.D., surgical oncologist with Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, which also uses the SCOUT system. “We welcome innovative approaches that are designed to enhance quality and help those in our care feel more supported and comfortable.” Read more... about Sutter Takes Part in the Transformation of Breast Cancer Surgery in Northern California: ‘Moving Beyond Wires’ for Tumor Localization
