Modified radical mastectomy is one of the most commonly performed surgeries on women with operable breast cancer. Surgeons are performing this procedure in the operating room with the assistance of a CST or CSFA. CSTs and CSFAs need continuing education hours in all different educational areas to increase their knowledge.


The goal of this modified radical mastectomy continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with information about modified radical mastectomy, when it is performed and its potential complications. After you study the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Describe how a patient is positioned for a modified radical mastectomy
  • List the equipment required for a modified radical mastectomy
  • Describe steps of the surgical procedure, as well as special techniques and measures in order to prevent seeding of cancer cells
