Williamson Medical Center's Breast Health Center in Franklin, Tenn., provides a patient-focused, comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. Education and support also are provided for those with benign conditions such as fibrocystic breast disease, unexplained breast pain and breast discharge. The center's staff, led by a certified Breast Health Navigator, also provides education regarding mammograms and breast self-exams.
Certified Breast Health Navigator
With the navigator at the helm, the Breast Health Center's comprehensive care also draws on expertise from multiple specialties-physicians, nurses and staff from Radiology, General Surgery, Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Pastoral Care, Occupational and Physical therapies, and Plastic Surgery.
The Breast Health Navigator guides patients through interaction with each specialty and provides follow-up. In addition, patients are provided with education regarding diagnosis, treatment options and what to anticipate with each phase of testing and treatment. The navigator gives each patient and her support system the tools to intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically face breast disease.
With WMC's Breast Health Navigator, patients have an advocate, educator and partner at any stage in the breast health experience, and support and guidance continue for as long as needed.
