St. Luke's Clinic – Breast Surgery: Nampa

When faced with a breast cancer diagnosis, it’s important to connect with a team of experts that will help you thoughtfully consider your surgical options, while supporting your overall well-being. The team at St. Luke’s Clinic – Breast Surgery offers you expertise in the latest, most effective breast cancer surgery procedures, along with compassion and the highest quality care. We also work closely with oncologists at St. Luke’s Cancer Institute to ensure continuity in your care.

Our surgeons perform breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy) or surgery to remove the entire breast (mastectomy). In some cases, lymph nodes under the arm may also be removed to check for cancer cells. The kind of surgery you have may depend on the size and location of your cancer and your personal preferences. We also work closely with breast reconstruction surgeons, if applicable. When appropriate based on your unique circumstances, cancer removal and breast reconstruction surgery may also be completed in one day as part of the same surgery.
