In most cases women with breast cancer will have some sort of surgery as part of their breast cancer treatment. There are several breast cancer surgeries that our breast cancer surgeons specialize in, which include lymph node biopsy, lumpectomy, breast conserving surgery, mastectomy, breast reconstruction during mastectomy and breast reconstruction after mastectomy. Bedford Breast Center’s breast cancer surgeons are among the top surgeons in the field today.
Leslie F. Memsic, MD, FACS
Breast Cancer Surgeon
Dr. Memsic brings over 33 years of medical experience to her demanding surgical practice in the Los Angeles area. Breast cancer patients seeking treatment at the Bedford Breast Center uniformly praise her compassion and understanding as well as her miraculous surgical skill.
Dr Heather Richardson has been caring for patients with breast disease since 2004. “I can’t think of a better job. Very few people have an opportunity to use their hearts, hands, eyes and ears every day with the goal of giving more time to mothers, sisters, daughters, and wives.”
Board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Cassileth divides her time between her private plastic and reconstructive surgery practice in Beverly Hills, and her duties as Clinical Chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. She also mentors and trains surgical residents in the breakthrough breast reconstruction methods she herself has pioneered making her one of the best breast cancer surgeons Los Angeles has.
Dr. James Pritchard
Radiologist – Breast Imaging Specialist
Dr. James Pritchard has been caring for patients as a radiologist specializing in breast disease in the Los Angeles area since 1973. He was one of the early adopters of ultrasound and contrast enhanced mammography to reduce unnecessary testing and zero in on dangerous disease. He has written multiple publications and has developed software for tracking and managing breast tissue findings. We are proud to have this pioneer and champion for women with breast disease on our team at Bedford Breast Center.
