Breastfeeding & Lactation Support
Breastfeeding has been proven to have many benefits, including boosting your baby’s immunity and enhancing the bond between mother and child. For those moms who would like to learn how to breastfeed, the Birthing Center staff includes lactation consultants who will be happy to address all of your needs. If you have questions after you have been discharged from the hospital, please ask to speak to our lactation consultant by calling 281-341-4888.
Women's Imaging Center
Designed with women in mind, our dedicated department offers a comfortable and friendly atmosphere. Patients will find the most up-to-date procedures for breast screening and diagnosis, including stereotactic equipment, which can localize a site for biopsy in the breast within a millimeter. This together with ultrasound enables core needle biopsies to be performed using a local anesthesia. Experienced and skilled physicians, female mammographers and ultrasound technicians staff the Women's Imaging Department.
Every woman is at risk for breast cancer. Screening for risk factors, although helpful, cannot fully predict whether a woman will develop breast cancer. Mammography is the most effective method of early detection, identifying cancer in its most treatable stage. Women 40 and older should include a mammogram as part of their annual physical, accompanied by monthly breast self-examinations. To schedule a mammogram, call (281) 341-4817.
Breast Ultrasound - Breast Specific Gamma Imaging
Breast Specific Gamma Imaging (BSGI) is clinically proven to provide clearer and more concise images to women with questionable mammograms. OakBend Medical Center is the first hospital in Fort Bend County to acquire BSGI. Mammograms image tissue densities whereas BSGI uses radioisotopes to detect cancer activity. BSGI can image without compressing the breast and has the potential to significantly reduce the number of invasive biopsies that result in negative findings.
Stereotactic Guided Biopsy
This minimally invasive image guided procedure helps physicians locate breast abnormalities and tissue sample (biopsy) for diagnosis. This non-surgical procedure is completed on an outpatient basis with minimum discomfort and recovery time. The radiologist and pathologist are present to view the biopsy and determine whether it is cancerous.
