Breast Surgery

breast imaging on hospital computer

Seeing a breast cancer surgeon can be a stressful time in a patient’s life. At Northside Gwinnett Surgical Associates, our two breast surgeons pride themselves on working hand-in-hand with their patients to help educate them on their diagnosis and treatment plan. Both of our breast surgeons are fellowship-trained oncology breast surgeons and the only two in Gwinnett County.

The surgeons work with Northside Hospital’s Cancer Institute to provide their patients additional resources like support groups, patient navigators and research trials.
