In the U.S., one in eight women will learn she has breast cancer at some time in her life. Survival rates are highest when breast cancer is diagnosed and treated in the earliest stage.
At Mercy Breast Center – Fort Smith, we’re dedicated to helping women beat breast cancer. Through early detection, treatment, education and ongoing support, we empower women in the fight against this disease. The breast center team is committed to keeping you healthy, and we do it in a comfortable, warm, personal setting.
Mercy Breast center offers automated whole breast ultrasound - the only breast cancer screening technology specifically developed and FDA approved for women with dense breast tissue. This new ultrasound technology is the first in this region. It uses sound waves to create 3D pictures of the breast tissue, and is specifically designed to help doctors find cancers that are hidden in dense breast tissue. This, along with your mammography results, allows for a clearer, more accurate and comprehensive evaluation for women with dense breast tissue.
Our mission at Mercy Breast Center is to bring you the best possible patient care in a setting where you feel trust and support. Our program includes education, diagnosis, treatment, and rehabilitation. We offer screening and diagnostic mammograms, plus expert follow-up care for all breast conditions, including cancer or other breast diseases. When it comes to your breast health, count on our team to deliver the care you need.
