Breast Care

USC Verdugo Hills Hospital’s team of dedicated breast care experts delivers a broad range of services. We tailor our approach to meet your individual situation, whether it is imaging, a breast mass, breast pain, high-risk family history of breast and ovarian cancer (including inherited genetic mutations BRCA 1 & 2), breast cancer treatment and follow-up and benign breast conditions. Additionally, our team of physicians value shared decision-making and strive to personalize care to meet each patient’s needs.

We provide the most advanced diagnostic and treatment technologies. The breast care team is multidisciplinary, meaning that we work with a variety of specialists who collaborate to guide women through evaluation, diagnosis and treatment. We are dedicated to ensuring high quality and innovative care through all aspects of your treatment.

We believe that every woman over 40 (unless high risk) should take charge of her health by having a yearly mammogram. That is why we have the latest, state-of the-art digital mammography system for accurate imaging and diagnosis.

To schedule a digital mammogram, please call (818) 952-3557.

Our patients benefit from coordinated care as our specialists conduct regular team conferences to evaluate every patient’s case. Together, they recommend a comprehensive and tailored treatment plan.
