SLUCare breast surgeon Dr. Kaitlin Farrell says, “Traditionally, we would have the patient come on the day of surgery. The radiologist would place a wire that actually is sticking outside of the breast, and was somewhat uncomfortable for the patient.”
Now, there’s a new magnetic surgical technology called Magseed. SLUCare’s specializing breast surgeons at SSM Health Saint Louis University Hospital have been using Magseed to detect and remove tumors too small to feel. They’re among the first in the region to use this technology to streamline breast cancer treatments for patients. Read the story at http://via.fox2now.com/qRDjn
