Oncoplastic Reconstruction of Lumpectomy Defects and IORT

Patients who undergo lumpectomy may require radiation in addition to their surgical treatment. Some patients are candidates for radiation therapy at the time of lumpectomy. This is called intra-operative radiation therapy and can be conducted at the time of lumpectomy. On some occasions patients may have breast cancer or pre-cancer in both breasts and can undergo bilateral lumpectomy and oncoplastic reconstruction with bilateral IORT.
