Surgical Biopsy

You are prepped for surgery, washing the night before and the morning of with anti-bacterial soap.

In my case, it was too small to be seen or felt, so a procedure known as a “Wire Localization” was performed.

Once the IV is hooked up, you are sedated for ‘twilight’. A nerve block is performed by the anesthesiologist by locating the nerves emanating from the spine the affect the breast area.

Once in surgery, an incision is made and cells removed for biopsy..  The incision is sewn closed and covered with steri-strips.
