The Breast Center offers women access to innovative biopsy techniques, including less invasive stereotactic and image-guided procedures. And for peace of mind and comfort, Centerpoint Medical Center’s nurse navigator leads the patient through the entire process from initial diagnostic procedures through surgery, if needed, and into recovery. Our Breast Center is accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).
