The American Society of Breast Surgeons Foundation is pleased to present its patient website, Breast360.org! As breast care experts, we want to share our knowledge with you and serve as your “go to place” for reliable, helpful information.
Knowledge is power. Breast360.org’s goal is to engage, educate and empower our readers so that they will be better able to make informed decisions for their breast health care.
The content of the website has been written by members of The American Society of Breast Surgeons, with a bit of help from collaborating experts in acupuncture, lymphedema and psychology. The contained information is not meant to replace a medical provider’s treatment or advice. Patients should consult their healthcare providers for specific medical treatment decisions.
The editors are indebted to our Patient Consultants, who helped immensely with the website concept and design. Their input makes the website practical and inclusive. The editors are also grateful for the tireless efforts by the incomparable staff of the American Society of Breast Surgeons. Their “can do” attitude made this website project a reality. They help make a difference in the practices of the Society’s members and the patients they touch. We appreciate them.
Breast360.org is respectfully dedicated to our patients, especially those who have been affected by breast cancer. Your courage inspires us to continue to seek excellence in the care of our patients.
Founded in 1995, the American Society of Breast Surgeons has grown to more than 3000 members in the United States and 35 countries throughout the world.
