Dr. Thomas J. Kearney, MD says

I appreciate the feedback patients provide on the Healthgrades site. Due to the nature of consultations for breast cancer, some patients require more time to have all their questions answered. Sometimes this leads to the next appointment starting later then expected. Hopefully, patients understand this and will be comforted by knowing that they will have all their questions answered as well if needed.

Conditions Treated

Dr. Kearney says..

As a fellowship-trained surgical oncologist at the Stacy Goldstein Breast Cancer Center at the Cancer Institute of New Jersey, I guide patients in choosing appropriate surgical options for breast cancer treatment.  As part of the multi-disciplinary team, I work closely with my colleagues in medical oncology, radiation oncology and reconstructive surgery (when needed) to help patients select appropriate additional therapies. I am also available to help patients evaluate breast concerns such as lumps and abnormal mammograms.

Radical surgery is much less common today. Most patients can avoid mastectomy safely. For those patients for whom mastectomy is the only safe choice, a number of advances in breast reconstruction, including nipple sparing mastectomy surgery, have allowed patients to more fully recover from their surgery with their body image intact. Frequently, breast biopsies can be performed without invasive surgery, a major step forward in patient comfort and convenience.
