About

Trusted Care in the Northwest Suburbs

The Breast Care Center at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital is committed to the prevention, early detection and treatment of breast cancer. We offer advanced technologies, specialized services and a sensitive staff specially trained in breast care so women can receive accurate answers about their breast health quickly and in a calming environment.

Located in Barrington, the Advocate Good Shepherd Breast Care Center is dedicated to women's breast health and is recognized for providing more care to patients with advanced technology such as intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT). IORT is a treatment alternative for women that reduces radiation treatment time as the procedure is performed at the same time as a lumpectomy.

Within this healing environment women have access to a full array of state-of-the-art diagnostic services and the expertise of a multidisciplinary team, all focused on timely, responsive and effective care, including:

Sophisticated, all-digital technology:

  • Four full-field digital screening and diagnostic mammography suites
  • Two dedicated ultrasound units
  • Digital and integrated stereotactic biopsy suite

Full breast imaging evaluations:

  • 3D Mammography
  • Digital screening mammography
  • Digital diagnostic mammography
  • Breast ultrasound
  • Stereotactic and ultrasound-guided biopsies
  • DEXA scans
  • Breast MRI

Commitment to Excellence

The Breast Care Center has been awarded with a designation from the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. As an accreditated NAPBC center, our patients have access to:

  • Comprehensive care, including a full range of state-of-the-art services
  • A multidisciplinary team approach to coordinate the best treatment options
  • Information about ongoing clinical trials and new treatment options
  • Quality breast care close to home
