Rex Healthcare Opens New Breast Surgery Clinic

Rex Comprehensive Breast Care Program Expands Care and Services Available

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Rex Comprehensive Breast Care Program announces the opening of Rex Breast Care Specialists, a new breast surgery clinic. An extension of Rex Surgical Specialists, the clinic is located in the same building as the Rex Breast Care Center at 3100 Duraleigh Road, Suite 205; just down the street from Rex’s main Raleigh campus.

The mission of the new clinic is to combine expertise with compassion, focusing on patients and their breast care needs in a calming and supportive atmosphere by providing personalized treatment plans. Rex’s board-certified surgeons, Dr. David Eddleman, Dr. Rachel Goble and Dr. Nancy Crowley, will lead the new Rex Breast Care Center.

“I’m excited about the addition of our new breast surgery clinic to the Rex Comprehensive Breast Care Program,” said Dr. David Eddleman, breast surgery medical director. “Our patients can now experience the convenience of having their breast imaging, surgical evaluation, and support all in one central location.”

Rex breast surgeons offer consultations, minimally-invasive breast biopsies, and coordination of comprehensive care for breast cancer and other complex breast problems. In addition to providing state-of-art breast cancer treatment, they treat many benign breast problems including breast cysts, nipple discharge, breast pain, breast lumps, mammographic abnormalities, and patients with an elevated risk of developing breast cancer based on personal and family history.

Rex Breast Care Specialists is a seamless part of Rex’s Comprehensive Breast Care Program. Our breast surgeons work closely with breast radiologists in the Rex Breast Imaging & Diagnostics Center and with oncologists and other specialists in the Rex Cancer Center.
