  • Excisional biopsy

Surgical literature clearly shows that patient outcomes are improved in the hands of a surgical expert. Dr. Slam also strongly believes that the non-physician team is as important as she is.  She proudly operates only at hospital facilities that are accredited through the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), which helps to ensure quality surgical care for her patients. Dr. Slam commits to care for her patients under NCCN and other established surgical guidelines for breast care and breast cancer, and maintains Surgery Board Certification.
