Davenport, IA --- A surgical procedure that plays an important role in breast cancer treatment will be shown during a webcast from Genesis Medical Center, Davenport Oct. 10th, at 7 p.m. CDT. Called a Sentinel Lymph Node (SLN) Biopsy, the procedure helps the doctor determine the extent to which the disease is spreading within the body, and develop an appropriate treatment plan. It also has fewer patient side effects than standard lymph node removal. Genesis, through its Center for Breast Health, was one of the first hospitals in the country to participate in a study of the effectiveness of the procedure, which now is an accepted standard of care for women diagnosed with breast cancer.

Breast cancer is a significant public health problem increasing at 2 percent per year. Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women and is second only to lung cancer as a cause of cancer deaths. Breast cancer strikes women of all ages, regardless of risk factors.

The Sentinel Lymph Node Biopsy will be performed by David Aanestad, M.D., Davenport Surgical Group, and Surgical/Medical Director of the Genesis Center for Breast Health. Joseph Lohmuller, M.D., Davenport Surgical Group, will moderate the webcast. It will be the medical center's fourth webcast.
