Stereotactic Breast Biopsy

Minimally Invasive Breast Biopsy

Penn Highlands Healthcare offers the Stereotactic Breast Biopsy System, a minimally invasive and highly accurate procedure that helps physicians locate breast abnormalities and obtain tissue samples for diagnosis

How It Works

The entire procedure can be performed in less than 1 hour. You’ll receive a local anesthetic prior to the procedure to minimize discomfort. Through a quarter-inch incision, the surgeon inserts a computer-guided probe into the suspected area to vacuum, cut, and remove tissue for lab analysis.

During the procedure, the surgeon can leave a tiny, surgical grade stainless steel device to mark the breast biopsy site. No sutures are needed, and the slight incision is covered with a small bandage.

Generally, a stereotactic breast biopsy:

  • Hurts less
  • Leaves less scarring
  • Offers quicker results
