CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) - Sentara Martha Jefferson is opening a breast surgery practice to provide better care in the community.

At the hospital, there will now be a team of specialists, rather than an independent practitioner, to help patients with their treatment and recovery.

The experts have extensive experience in treating melanoma and breast cancer, which will help expand the services at SMJH.

“Breast cancer is such a devastating disease. We have an amazing, amazing team of radiation oncologists, of medical oncology physicians, and now the breast surgery physicians,” = Regional Director of Operations for Sentara Medical Group Charlottesville Ellen Burke said.

The physicians just started their first week in the practice. If you want to contact one for help call 434-654-7000.
