There’s a new website that promises to help women better understand breast cancer treatment options.
Breastcancersurgery.com provides information about what surgical options are available, but it also has stories from other women who have experienced and survived breast cancer.
Dr. Rache Simmons is a breast cancer surgeon who’s working with the site as part of a campaign called Search, Share, Spare.
She says the site has useful tools for patients and physicians.
“There are videos of women that have had breast cancer surgery, and there are videos of breast surgeons from around the country talking about different surgical options for patients.”
She says the site can also help surgeons who may not be up on the latest techniques.
“They can learn about lumpectomy, mastectomies, different types of mastectomies, about reconstruction options,” she says. “There are great illustrations really to show the patients what these different surgeries are.”
