Changing Landscape of Breast Cancer Management

Published:October 17, 2022DOI:
      This review is meant to be a resource for surgeons treating breast cancer patients today, recognizing clinical trials and innovation will change this landscape even further next year. Breast surgeons are expected to master current surgical techniques while also being mindful of the impact our treatments have on the quality of life of our patients. As such, this issue of Surgical Clinics incorporates articles on survivorship medicine, a burgeoning area of practice in the management of breast cancer. We have also included standard articles on updated pathology and current radiology, a discussion about practice changing clinical trials, and systemic medical management. We are excited about the discussion on new surgical techniques and novel approaches to breast reconstruction. Finally, the article on deescalation will have all of us continuing to reevaluate and examine our role as surgeons in the future care of individuals with breast cancer.
      We hope you enjoy this review of breast cancer management as much as we have enjoyed working with our colleagues to put this together.
