Kazuaki Takabe, MD, PhD, FACS, Clinical Chief of Breast Surgery at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center shares the newest innovations of breast cancer treatment at Roswell Park and why to choose Roswell Park for your patient’s care.
Hi I'm Kazuaki to cobb chief of breast surgery at Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. We understand that patients can be anxious. So we have a role to see the first new patient within three days for cancer and for benign breast disease. We try to see them within a week. So we have seven breast surgeons. But many of our involved in a research in national level. For instance, Doctor Steven Edge was the chair of A. J. C. C. Cancer staging, which defines how bad the cancer is. Surgery is very technical. So when you do more surgeries you're proficient. One of our faculty, doctor Jessica Young operated the most number of the operations within the institution. There multiple research that shows that even in the same operation when you get the operation in high volume center, the complication risk is lower. So one of the benefit of getting the treatment at Comprehensive Cancer center is not only about just surgery but other services as well. Our pathologist only see breast pathology, not to mention the chief of breast pathology is one of the national leader. In terms of those interpretations, Roosevelt Park has a long history of immunology and immunotherapy now form a tastic triple negative breast cancer patients. Immunotherapy is approved. We have established A A. T. C. Which is not truly an emergency room because we do not see any traumas. But for our own patients with uh emergency on cancer, that's a huge benefit for the patient.
