Here at the Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center, we offer partial breast radiation on patients diagnosed with breast cancer, when appropriate. Partial breast radiation is performed under the supervision of our radiation oncologists at the Hunterdon Regional Cancer Center. It is a type of breast radiation, which lasts 5 days instead of the usual 4-6 week course, and requires insertion of a temporary catheter, which is placed in the breast. The radiation catheter is inserted at the Hunterdon Breast Surgery Center by your breast surgeon. Appropriateness of partial breast radiation is decided between your breast surgeon and our radiation oncology team following surgery.
