Our breast health program offers a full spectrum of care, from 3D mammography screening to breast cancer surgery options and follow up care. Dr. Jared Linebarger, fellowship trained breast surgeon, Dr. Patrick Ryberg, and the rest of our highly trained imaging, breast health and surgery team are proud to care for every patient, from annual screenings to cancer care.
We also offer a more comfortable option for women requiring a biopsy or tissue removal. The SAVI SCOUT system is an incredibly precise tool that allows the surgeon to accurately locate the tissue or mass to be removed within millimeters–resulting in a full removal of suspicious or cancerous tissue, without taking more than is needed. This lets our patients recover with less pain, less bruising and better cosmetic outcomes, as well as more comfort on the day of surgery. Learn more by listening to the podcast below.
True Digital Mammography and 3D Mammography are available!
Every radiology technician at Upland Hills Health is a registered mammography technician. Our team receives the highest level of training of any imaging team in southwest Wisconsin.
We offer true digital, 3D mammography to our patients for its superior images and lower radiation, and breast MRIs for patients who need them. Talk to your physician about which screening services are right for you.
When you feel a lump in your breast or a routine mammogram detects something suspicious, you can count on our breast health team to walk you through the next steps. In many cases, a second mammogram is ordered, sometimes with an ultrasound exam of the breast in question. We also have breast MRI services for patients to get a more detailed picture of the questionable area.
If the radiologist determines that they’d like more information to determine the next step, we offer minimally invasive, image guided biopsies, stereotactic biopsies and surgical biopsies.
We are happy to offer most breast cancer treatment options right here in Dodgeville, where you can stay close to home and not add travel to your concerns.
After diagnosis, you will meet with Dr. Linebarger, our surgical oncologist, to talk about which treatment options are best for your case.
Your breast care team at Upland Hills Health offers surgery and reconstruction, coordination with our partners for medical oncology and radiation oncology, as well as follow up screenings and therapies.
Dr. Jared Linebarger, general surgeon and surgical oncologist, is fellowship trained in breast surgery. Dr. Clifford King, a plastic surgery specialist, joins Dr. Linebarger in cases that require breast reconstruction. Chemotherapy can be done right in Dodgeville, and radiation therapies are coordinated with our partners in Madison.
Our top concern is that you receive the best medical treatment for you, while experiencing the compassion and care you can expect from your community hospital.
Besides the latest technology and a highly trained breast surgery team, we offer physical and occupational therapy for patients who need it post-surgery, social workers and patient navigators to help you work with the emotional and logistical pieces of a breast cancer diagnosis and treatments, and the support of your primary doctor through the process.
