Montclair’s Little Breast Hospital

BY  |  Friday, Sep 30, 2011 11:23am  |  COMMENTS (3)

Tomorrow begins Breast Cancer Awareness month. Baristanet visits local breast cancer specialist, Montclair Breast Center’s Dr. Nancy Elliot, whose practice is unlike any other in the country. Read a Q&A on the state of the disease with Dr. Elliot here.

The Montclair Breast Center (MBC) — fondly referred to by Elliot as “The Little Breast Hospital” — is the only facility in the United States to house imaging, diagnostics, treatment and reconstructive surgery in the same building. They’re a one-stop-shop for all things breast-health related, and their integrative, personalized approach to fighting the rampant disease is both healing and, sort of spiritual.

I recently visited the little hospital (full disclosure: Montclair Breast Center is a Baristanet advertiser) to get an update on “The State of the Disease,” for October’s 25th annual Breast Cancer Awareness month. I went in with questions, and came out, not only with answers, but with the feeling that I had just had an hour-long massage. For me, talking with the various doctors and staff members at MBC, made this usually terrifying topic a little less frightening. I actually felt like I had breathed a sigh of relief to know that there is hope for prevention, treatment, and perhaps even a cure.

“It’s all about being educated,” Elliott said. “There’s so much we can do to take control of the risk. Knowledge is power.”
