Breast cancer is the most frequently diagnosed kind of cancer among women in Northwest Arkansas. Fortunately, breast cancer in Northwest Arkansas is not a diagnosis that means you need to travel to seek treatment. The Fayetteville/ Bentonville area is home to some of the most respected experts on breast cancer in the country.
The Arkansas Breast Cancer Specialists group consists of physicians from multiple specialties, including Breast Imaging, Pathology, Surgery, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology, along with support staff. Since 1998, this group has functioned as a “clinic without walls” to provide coordinated care for breast cancer patients in Northwest Arkansas. The Breast Center is part of the Arkansas Breast Cancer Specialists.
In 2016, the group was accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), part of the American College of Surgeons. The accreditation ensures that you can have complete confidence in Arkansas Breast Cancer Specialists.
The Breast Center offers comprehensive breast health care, including 3-D Mammography, an advanced technology that provides more accurate results than traditional mammography, with fewer false positives.
The Breast Center, a MANA clinic, has also been named a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology.
Arkansas state law requires insurance companies to cover 3-D mammograms if they cover screening mammograms. Women in Northwest Arkansas without insurance coverage of mammograms also have options for financial support for mammograms.
