Since 1997, women across the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area have trusted their breast health to the breast care experts at The Betty Lou Ourisman Breast Health Center. Our breast care experts provide comprehensive breast care for both women and men, and treat a wide range of breast conditions, including breast cancer, and benign breast disease. We also follow women who are at increased risk for developing breast cancer.
Breast Health Expertise
Fortunately, most women who pass through our doors receive a clean bill of health. But for those who need extra care, our doctors are the gateway to specialized treatment at the world-renowned Lombardi Comprehensive Cancer Center—the area’s only comprehensive cancer center, and one of only 41 in the nation designated by the National Cancer Institute. NCI designates this accreditation to cancer centers that demonstrate excellence and commitment to advancing cancer treatment and research using multidisciplinary approaches.
