At Inspira, we aim to empower and inform women of all ages about breast health.
Our Approach to Breast Health
Like all facets of women’s health care, the focus of our breast health program changes through the ages. It’s normal for a woman’s breasts to change during her lifetime. They can grow in size, change in texture and may become tender or painful especially with breastfeeding or menopause.
For that reason, Inspira provides personalized care for a wide range of breast health services.
For new mothers, we offer breastfeeding consultations and support. For those at the appropriate age for their risk profile, we offer mammography and breast cancer screening.
At Inspira, we are proud to offer a variety of breast cancer screening services and diagnostics. We are also able to treat common noncancerous conditions such as:
- Breast infections and inflammations
- Common benign lumps
- Mastalgia (breast pain)
- Nipple problems and discharge
Why Choose Inspira for Breast Health Care
We offer comprehensive gynecology services for women throughout their reproductive lives, from adolescents scheduling their first routine exam to women facing symptoms of menopause. Through our referral service, we can help you find the right gynecologist to meet your needs. Inspira’s team of certified nurse midwives at Gentle Beginnings also offers a full spectrum of women’s health services beyond maternity care to their patients.
Through our navigator program, we offer each woman clinical and non-clinical support. Our navigators connect with women when they have an abnormal mammogram, breast changes or lumps. They continue to work with every woman who is diagnosed with breast cancer to support her physical and emotional needs through cancer treatment and survivorship. Navigators educate patients and their families and help them make treatment decisions, deal with insurance issues, arrange transportation and coordinate services such as fertility preservation or physical rehabilitation. Additionally, navigators ensure care coordination and manage relationships with multiple specialists involved in a patient’s care. They are strong advocates who support each patient’s right to ask questions, understand medical reports and know what to expect from treatment.
Beyond advanced clinical care Inspira offers women with breast cancer personalized support from a navigator and comprehensive support services. Patients benefit from ongoing distress screening/counseling and a physical rehabilitation program that can begin before treatment to improve outcomes. Inspira’s care continues with programs to support survivors in maintaining and furthering positive outcomes. Support services also include genetic testing and genetic counseling, nutrition counseling with a registered dietician and social workers to help patients navigate non-clinical needs.
