No Surgery, No Scars: A New Treatment For Fibroadenoma
If you have a breast fibroadenoma, there may be a new solution for you. The Columbia Clinical Breast Program now offers echotherapy, a new non-invasive treatment.
Much like using a magnifying glass to concentrate sunlight, echotherapy works by using focused ultrasound waves to heat breast tissue at a precisely targeted site. The result: a reduction in size of the fibroadeoma without any incisions or scars.
This non-surgical treatment is done on an outpatient basis in a single session, and general anesthesia is avoided.
