Welcome to the Center for Comprehensive Breast Care  Since 1995


At the Comprehensive Center for Breast Care at ASBS, we are dedicated to providing the highest quality of care to patients diagnosed with breast cancer. Our Center brings together the South Bay's premier multidisciplinary breast cancer team. Specialists from medical, radiation and surgical oncology work together to provide the most advanced individualized treatment plans. Under the guidance of Dr. Ali-Jones and Dr. Friedlander, the Co-Directors of the Breast Surgery Program at the Hunt Cancer Institute, we off comprehensive screening, diagnostic, medical and surgical breast services, nutrition and genetics counseling, and a full array of psycho-social support for patients and families.

Our breast surgeons have cared for over 20,000 breast patients, providing a comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to benign and malignant diseases of the breast and collaborating closely with other specialists at the Torrance Memorial Breast Diagnostic Center and the Providence Little Company of Mary Torrance Women's Imaging Center. We also employ cutting-edge care with all of the latest surgical device technology.

Our breast surgeons work closely with their patients to identify a surgical option that provides for the best outcome taking personal concerns and preferences into consideration so that they never have to leave the South Bay to get premiere care in their own neighborhood. Some options include:

  • Oncoplastic surgical techniques for better outcomes
  • Skin sparing or nipple sparing mastectomy
  • Sentinel lymph node biopsy and selective axillary node dissection
  • Immediate reconstruction in coordination with plastic surgeons
  • Surgical treatment for high risk or BRCA mutation carriers
