The Ashikari Breast Center is the recipient of the National Accredited Program of Breast Centers for providing the highest quality care to patients and by offering a comprehensive range of breast care services.
St. John’s Riverside Hospital is also home to Avon Foundation Mammography Suite. The Center is equipped with the latest state-of the art, 3D mammography units, each in its own private, comfortably decorated room.
In addition to our high resolution ultrasound and digital mammography, we have acquired a new state-of-the-art MRI with dedicated breast coil that provides enhanced imaging for our patients and allows us to perform MRI-guided biopsy procedures when needed.
St. John’s Riverside Hospital Ashikari Breast Center not only treats breast cancer patients but routinely screens high risk patients and manages benign breast disorders as well. The center is known worldwide for a one-stage prophylactic nipple sparing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction which was pioneered through the practice alongside our plastic surgeons. This has given high-risk patients throughout the country a wonderful risk reduction strategy while achieving an extremely pleasing cosmetic one-step operation.
As pioneers in the field of breast care, The Breast Center now offers patients Intraoperative Radiation Therapy (IORT), a technique that delivers a concentrated dose of radiation to the excision site at the time of surgery. This one-time radiation treatment dramatically decreases the time a patient must spend in radiation therapy, post-surgery. This groundbreaking radiation therapy is yet another example of how St. John’s Riverside Hospital is committed to providing its patients with the most sophisticated breast cancer care.
As a courtesy to our oncology patients, St. John’s Riverside Hospital provides the services of a Patient Navigator. Your navigator serves as a proactive guide to help you “navigate” all available necessary information from the professional and supportive staff as well as community resources that will make the journey to recovery more understandable and positive. They also provide assistance in obtaining medical records from other facilities, as well as making timely appointments for your tests and physician exams.
