Boutique

Our center includes a recovery garment boutique with clothing and accessories created specifically for breast cancer patients and survivors. Merchandise includes post-mastectomy garments, lymphedema sleeves and head scarves as well as special robes and other items useful for pampering oneself. The boutique also provides access to wig and prosthetic manufacturers.

Lymphedema Therapy

Women who have been treated surgically for breast cancer may be at risk for lymphedema in the arm, breast and chest. It is caused by a build-up of fluid in the fatty tissue just underneath the skin. For those experiencing lymphedema, we offer a combined therapy program that includes massage, bandaging, exercises and skin care – all managed by a specially trained therapist.

Scheduling Services

To schedule a mammogram, or any of the other services offered at the Seton Breast Care Center, please call 512-324-1025.

A physician’s order is not required for mammogram screenings. However, we will need the name of your physician in order to send your results.
