Comprehensive Breast Care at Pluta
Breast Cancer care should be advanced and comprehensive. It should be convenient and comforting. Comprehensive Breast Care at Pluta gives women all of these things — and much more.
What makes Comprehensive Breast Care at Pluta different.
True multidisciplinary care. Comprehensive Breast Care at Pluta gives women every doctor she might need — medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, breast surgeons and pathologists — all in one place.
Convenient. We are centrally located at the Pluta Cancer Center, 125 Red Creek Drive in Henrietta. Parking is free, and we provide a convenient patient drop-off area.
More clinical trials. As part of the Wilmot Cancer Institute, we provide access to more clinical trials than any other breast cancer program in the region.
Advanced radiation. We were the first program in Rochester to offer Breast Prone Radiation to help protect healthy tissues in your heart and lungs during radiation treatments.
Integrative therapies. We give women many options for integrative therapies such as tai chi, massage, yoga and Reiki.
A comforting environment. Comprehensive Breast Care at Pluta is located in a newly renovated space that reflects the warm, comforting atmosphere Pluta is known for.
At UR Medicine, we offer sub-specialized pathologists who specialize in breast cancer, for greater expertise in diagnosing and staging breast cancer.
We also offer advanced genetic tests for the HER2/neu gene, a gene that increases risks for breast cancer. This testing not only helps guide your therapy, it can alert family members who may also be at risk for breast cancer.
Not all breast cancer is the same. Our expertise in pathology, imaging and genetics helps us to understand your breast cancer more precisely—and then customize your treatment.
We offer the most advanced surgical therapies for breast cancer. Our highly experienced breast surgeons work in a multidisciplinary team with specialists in Imaging, Pathology, Medical Oncology, Radiation Oncology and Breast Reconstruction to make surgery more precise.
We provide treatments that specifically target breast cancer caused by the HER2/neu gene.
Our medical oncologists are specialists in systemic treatment for breast cancer. We develop an individualized treatment plan that is customized to your specific pathological diagnosis and medical history. In addition to standard chemotherapy, hormonal blockade, and targeted therapy, we provide a comprehensive plan to manage the side effects that can be associated with chemotherapy.
We also offer radiation therapy that is more precise. We are the first in the region to offer Prone Breast Radiation, a revolutionary technology that focuses radiation more precisely on tumor cells, helping protect healthy tissue in the heart and lungs.
A healthy life after cancer is the goal of every cancer patient. But the best way to achieve that varies widely—depending on you, your type of cancer, and the treatment you received.
The Wilmot Cancer Institute offers the area's only Survivorship Program. We provide each patient with a comprehensive plan for life after breast cancer, personalized to your health, life, goals and concerns.
