What is a Breast Specialist?
Our Boulder Breast Center is committed to providing you with the best care. Whether it’s breast pain or its breast cancer that requires surgery, we can help you with your treatment and care with extraordinary doctors and techniques. A breast surgeon is a general surgeon with a specific interest in treating patients with breast disease. As members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, the primary leadership organization for general surgeons who treat patients with breast disease, our surgeons are committed to continually improving the practice of breast surgery by seeking excellence in the care of breast patients. Being a part of the American Society of Breast Surgeons, this mission is accomplished by participating in a forum for the exchange of ideas and by promoting education, research, and the development of advanced surgical techniques.
What is a Board-Certified Surgeon?
A surgeon who is Board-Certified has passed strict requirements in education, training and certification examinations to prove competency in a surgical specialty. Board certification requires a surgeon to be graduated from an accredited medical school plus have a minimum of five years of training in an accredited medical residency program. The surgeon must also pass a written examination followed by an oral examination which tests the surgeon’s judgment and decision making skills. Candidates are interviewed by very experienced surgeons.
