Sansum Clinic's breast care team was created to provide prompt, compassionate, comprehensive care to both women and men with diseases of the breast through our multidisciplinary team of specialists. Sansum Clinic physicians and surgeons treat more than half of the patients diagnosed with breast cancer each year in Santa Barbara (phone, fax, hours, directions) .
Early detection is critical to determining a good outcome for breast cancer. Women are encouraged to have a routine mammogram, an X-ray that examines breast tissue, so any developing abnormalities can be found. At Sansum Clinic, we provide digital mammography services so women are confident they are getting the most advanced breast imaging possible.
