Dr. Mary Jane Warden, breast surgeon at HackensackUMC, says there are a number of benefits to this advancement. “Since it can be placed in the breast ahead of time, the patient doesn’t have to come in so early the day of surgery. Because it’s such a precise localizer, we take out less tissue and leave the patient with a better cosmetic result. And because it’s so precise, the patient is less likely to come back for additional surgery.”
