Technology: We've invested in the most advanced technology and are proud to be the only hospital in the Lehigh Valley to offer technology such as Positron Emission Mammography and the MarginProbe System.
The MarginProbe is used in the operating room to determine if the margins of a lumpectomy are free of cancerous tissue. Prior to the development of this technology, there was no effective way of confirming that all the cancer had been removed during a procedure. In fact, a national average of 30 percent of lumpectomy patients had to return to the operating room to have additional tissue removed or to have a mastectomy performed.
With the MarginProbe, our team knows within minutes whether all of the cancer has been removed. Our team can then remove any additional tissue while the patient is still in the operating room. This step eliminates the need for a second surgery and adds to the patient's overall peace of mind.
Extended Hours: To make breast screening as easy as possible for you, we are the only provider in the Lehigh Valley to offer imaging services on Thursday evenings. Please call our 24/7 live Solution Center at 877 247 8080, to schedule your mammography.
