Dr. Tari King on Breast Cancer Surgery | Dana-Farber Cancer Institute


my name is Tari breast cancer surgeons
in my practice is devoted 100% to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer
and spend my time not only trying to provide patients with optimal care but
also trying to understand more about the biology of the disease whose at highest
risk for getting breast cancer and what are the ways that we can either treated
better or hopefully one day prevent breast cancer so when a woman is newly
diagnosed with breast cancer it’s a very anxiety provoking time in her life and
it’s important for her to understand that breast cancer management comes in
multiple different pieces and in order for us to really best did buys her we
really do need to have all the information together at the time of our
first is it really want to be able to put the whole picture together and
really give her the best advice and then come to a treatment plan that really
best fits that patients needs very important when a woman comes in to
discuss her breast cancer diagnosis that she does have some companionship whether
it’s family member caregiver friend simply at a lot of information to absorb
at that first is it and it’s helpful to have somebody else they’re listening
also I really try to break things down into you know as simple of terms and
simple of of topics as we can buy a lot of pictures I told them that there are
going to be learning breast 101 as we explained their diagnosis and just to
feel like they’ve received the information that they need to feel
comfortable with the choices that they need to make I’m frequently asked by my patients why
they should choose one hospital over another one doctor over another when
they’re making decisions about where to receive their treatment for breast
cancer and I’ve been fortunate because I’ve always worked in comprehensive
cancer centers where I can honestly tell a woman that the reason to come to a
center like dana-farber at brigham women’s cancer center is that everybody
here everybody that you will encounter everybody that’s involved in your care
focuses specifically on breast cancer being able just to focus on breast
cancer allows us to really gained a much deeper understanding and really allows us to tailor our
therapies towards that individual much more than just a one size fits all
approach and so it’s very excited about the opportunity come here and join the
clinical enterprise and also bring my experience and expertise to this
community and really see how we can work together to better the lives of the
breast cancer patients who are treated here
