Many women who are diagnosed with breast cancer  have surgery as part of their treatment. At Yale Medicine, doctors perform a wide range of surgeries to treat breast cancer, including minimally invasive lumpectomies, complex bilateral mastectomies and breast reconstruction. 

Our world-class team of anesthesiologists works closely with breast surgeons to make sure that you stay safe and comfortable during and after breast surgery. 

We offer personalized anesthesia options for each patient, says Viji Kurup, MD, a Yale Medicine anesthesiologist.
