Breast Center: Why Choose Vanderbilt

  • Recognized care: We are accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers. This means our institution is held to the highest standards of care for patients with breast disease. The Vanderbilt Breast Center is affiliated with Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center, which is designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute, the highest ranking by the world’s leading authority on cancer. The Vanderbilt Breast Center is recognized as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology. This designation is considered the gold standard in medical imaging.
  • Top specialists: Our doctors all specialize in the diagnosis and management of breast disease with a focus on breast cancer. Our program is the only one in Middle Tennessee with pathologists and radiologists dedicated entirely to diagnosing and treating breast cancer. This means our specialists can provide a more accurate diagnosis for you. Often, patients seek us for a second opinion on their diagnosis and treatment plan.
  • A team approach: Our medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiologists, plastic surgeons and genetic counselors combine their expertise to create a personalized care plan that is right for you. We tailor your care based on your current health, preferences and tests.
  • Innovative research: Our researchers not only apply the latest research in breast care, but also pioneer some of the latest innovations. At Vanderbilt, our researchers are participants in the Specialized Program of Research Excellence (SPORE) in Breast Cancer. This program is one of only five in the country and focuses on innovative research for better screening, prevention, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
  • Leading research: We are dedicated to developing new and better care options through clinical trials. Our doctors offer robust clinical trials but also initiate research studies based on the latest scientific advances such as the ReSensation study. This study examines the effectiveness of donor nerve grafts in restoring sensation to breast tissue after mastectomy and reconstruction.
  • One convenient location: Our specialists offer services at the One Hundred Oaks campus in Nashville, Tennessee. With comprehensive care from imaging to infusion services in one location, you can focus on improving your health.
