Breast cancer treatment: View a live operation

OR Live logo
Multidisciplinary treatment for breast cancer at the Brigham and Women's Hospital (Harvard Medical School Teaching Affiliate), Boston Massachusetts, USA.
Through our partnership with OR-live.com, the leaders in healthcare webcasting, we are able to provide access to their archive of live operations, broadcast from leading hospitals in the USA.
We feature a recording of a live webcast of a multidisciplinary approach to treating breast cancer. This approach will show how the Dana-Farber/Brigham and Women's Hospital Cancer Center brings together pathology, radiology, surgical oncology, medical oncology and radiation oncology to treat breast cancer. The Webcast highlights a core needle biopsy, preoperative chemotherapy and demonstrates live, the use of regional anesthesia, (para-vertebral block) – a technique frequently used at Brigham and Women's Hospital for breast and axillary surgery.
You will need to download and install RealPlayer Basic or RealPlayer Plus to view the webcasts.
