Breast Surgery Clinic in Springfield, Mo.

If you or a loved one is at high risk for breast cancer or has benign breast disease, trust your care to Mercy Clinic Breast Surgery. Our surgeons and medical professionals are members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons. We focus on your complete well-being throughout treatment and into survivorship – all in one location. We work closely with breast radiologists, oncologists, plastic surgeons and pathologists [MXS1] to provide the right care for you.

Breast Surgery Services

Our services include breast cancer surgery for both women and men, high-risk breast care, treatment of benign breast conditions, and ongoing surveillance and support after treatment. We also provide second opinions for breast concerns diagnosed elsewhere.

Evaluation & Surgical Treatment of Breast Cancer

For women diagnosed with cancer undergoing surgical treatment, Mercy now offers SAVI SCOUT®. It’s a small reflector, the size of a grain of rice, that a radiologist implants in a woman’s breast to mark the exact spot of the tumor. Later, the surgeon uses the SCOUT guide, which emits infrared light and a radar signal, to detect the reflector and remove the lump.

Additional surgical services for breast cancer include: 

  • Surgical breast biopsy, with or without localization
  • Lumpectomy, with or without localization
    • Localization marks the exact spot of a tumor and can be done wirelessly
  • Mastectomy, with or without breast reconstruction
  • Port placement for chemotherapy
  • Sentinel node biopsy to check for cancer cells in lymph nodes
  • Sentinel node biopsy to check for cancer cells in lymph nodes
