Our advanced capabilities — focused on women's' imaging services, including breast MRI as well as digital and 3-D Mammography — are complemented by our highly trained staff, illustrating our commitment to provide early and accurate diagnosis of breast abnormalities and to be a partner in your health.

Collaborative Approach to Treatment

When you receive a breast cancer diagnosis, it can be overwhelming to understand the many treatment options presented to you. The NorthBay Cancer Center team is here to help you along each step in your treatment plan.  Our team of specialized surgeons, oncologists, radiologists and pathologists design a unique treatment plan specifically for your diagnosis. Our oncology nurse navigators are here to support you and your family through the often complex process of diagnosis, treatment, and recovery.  Our Breast Cancer Program's primary goal is to improve the lives of our patients by offering access to the most promising treatments available in a compassionate and supportive environment. 

Cutting Edge Treatment

Our team of cancer specialists work with you to develop an individualized treatment plan specific to your diagnosis that improves outcomes for each patient. In addition to active participation in cancer clinical trials through a cooperative with the Stanford University Cancer Center and the Cancer Trials Support Unit, you will have access to cutting edge cancer therapy and treatment options. Oncoplastic breast surgery, combining breast cancer surgery with the latest plastic surgery techniques, is also offered and provides more opportunities to preserve and reconstruct breasts. 

We are With You for the Journey

  • Cancer Symptom Management:Throughout treatment, our team will use a comprehensive approach to help manage your symptoms with the goal of relieving pain, symptoms and optimizing the quality of life for you and your family.
