Breast Cancer Treatment at MEDARVA

Several new technologies are now available for breast surgery at MEDARVA Surgery Centers. MEDARVA Surgery Centers are Virginia's premier independent surgery centers.

With two convenient locations in central Virginia, Stony Point Surgery Center and West Creek Surgery Center provide a high-value, low cost surgical option for breast cancer surgery.

Magseed® marker can lead to a more accurate breast surgery.

Magseed® is a wire-free, radiation-free magnetic marker that is placed into the patient to guide surgeons during a lumpectomy.

Magseed® provides a minimally invasive solution to locate a breast tumor and remove it in one operation. Surgeons are also typically able to remove less breast tissue than with other breast cancer surgery options like wire localization.

The Mozart System

The MOZART® System is more accurate at identifying postive margins.

Digital Breast Tomosynthesis is rapidly gaining acceptance as the next gold standard for specimen mammography. Unlike its traditional 2D X-ray counterpart, tomosynthesis allows physicians to see the breast specimen in 3 dimensions — improving accuracy and reducing false positives.

There is nothing nice about having to go through cancer surgery, and no one wants to go through it more than once,” said Kandace P. McGuire, MD. “Removing cancerous tumors is now a ‘one and done’ procedure thanks to the Magseed® device we’re using at MEDARVA Surgery Centers.”

Wire-free. Radiation-free.

The Magseed® marker has helped tens of thousands of women around the world have better outcomes from their breast surgery.

The small, radiation-free, unbreakable marker is undetectable to the woman once it's in place. The marker is easily placed by the radiologist without in soft tissue with no restrictions on implantation time in a procedure that’s very similar to the biopsy process.

 

Tiny Seed. Huge Impact.

The sterile surgical grade steel marker is approximately the size of a grain of sand and creates a strong magnetic field around the tumor. It is inserted before surgery next to a breast cancer to help guide surgeons during a breast lumpectomy.

During surgery, it provides multidirectional sensing to the surgeon for easy removal. The Magseed® marker provides a much more streamlined surgical process for each patient, which allows surgeons to see more patients.

MEDARVA Surgery Centers are the only outpatient surgical facility currently offering breast cancer surgery using the Magseed® marker in central Virginia. With shorter wait times and less delays in a convenient location, patients are able to get back home to recuperate faster.

Why the MOZART System?

  • Creates true 3D images of breast specimens in 1mm slices in a single operation.
  • Independently associated with a lower re-excision rates (up to 50%) compared to Faxitron 2D imaging.
  • More accurate than 2D imaging for identifying positive margins.
  • Provides superior visibility through dense breast tissue.
  • Reduces the likelihood of excising healthy breast tissue unnecessarily.
  • Enables superior cosmesis for the patient.
  • Reduces need for time consuming orthogonal views.

RE-EXCISION RATES

Using 3D tomosynthesis in the operating room reduces re-excision rates by more than 50% compared to the traditional 2D imaging systems commonly in use.
