Breast Surgery


At Surgical Associates, our breast surgery team manages all concerns related to the breast, cancer and non-cancerous.  We also provide detailed breast risk assessments for people who may have an increased risk for developing breast cancer.  You might be referred to our breast surgery team to discuss surgical options or because you need an expert clinical breast exam and evaluation of worrisome breast-related changes.  Our breast surgery team will evaluate and manage the following:

  • Breast cancer
  • High breast cancer risk by family history
  • High risk lesions such as Atypical Ductal Hyperplasia, Atypical Lobular Hyperplasia, or Lobular Carcinoma In Situ
  • Papilloma
  • Radial scar (Complex Sclerosing Lesion)
  • Phyllodes Tumor
  • Benign (non-cancerous) lesions such as fibroadenomas and fibrocystic changes
  • Breast changes such as nipple discharge, skin or nipple changes, or new lumps or masses
  • Breast infections
  • Breast pain

At Surgical Associates, our goal is to provide personalized care using a collaborative, team-based approach and up to date technology and treatment guidelines. Dr. Cecilia Stroede, our fellowship trained breast surgeon and Director of Aspirus Breast Program, will work closely with your personal physician and an experienced breast cancer team of radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, genetic counselors, and plastic surgeons at a CoC and NAPBC accredited institution to provide a fast diagnosis and an efficient pathway through treatment. Dr. Stroede along with the breast cancer team meets regularly to review and discuss all new patients with breast cancer to reach an agreement on treatment strategies.  Our team’s focus is always on the individual needs of every patient.
