Whether you're sick or well, we believe it's important to take a comprehensive approach to your care. The women's health physicians at the Saul and Joyce Brandman Breast Center specialize in health concerns of woman being treated for breast cancer. Therapy for breast cancer can often bring about early menopause or exacerbate existing menopausal symptoms. Our women's health physicians have expertise in treating menopausal symptoms and related health issues. Effective non-hormonal treatments for breast cancer patients are available for osteoporosis, sexuality issues, hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal and urinary symptoms. These may include the use of non-hormonal medications, nutritional counseling, herbs, and complementary therapies.
The women's health physicians also provide care to women at high risk for developing breast cancer. They assist many of our patients as they decide whether to start or continue hormone therapy. Additionally, they counsel women on lifestyle habits that promote breast health.
