Innovative Breast Surgery & Reconstruction Techniques

The GW Comprehensive Breast Center is the first and only breast center in Metro Washington, DC, with an all-women team of breast surgeons. Combining state-of-the-art technology with superior medical and surgical care, our surgeons are pioneering advanced breast surgery and reconstruction techniques such as nipple-sparing mastectomies and radioactive seed localizations.

Our Center has been awarded a three-year full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) for providing quality evaluation and management of their patients with breast disease.

"We have an unwavering commitment to patients with breast cancer throughout their entire journey from diagnosis to survivorship," said Christine Teal, MD, breast surgeon. "This recognition underscores that dedication and acknowledges the quality of our comprehensive center."
