Lumpectomy is the surgical standard of care today for many breast lesions. Increasingly, surgeons are performing lumpectomy procedures, either with or without wire placement, rather than radical mastectomy. The decision is based upon the size of the tumor. CSTs & CSFAs need continuing education hours to increase their knowledge about this procedure.


The goal of this continuing education program is to provide surgical technologists with information about lumpectomy, when it is performed and its potential complications. After studying the information presented here, you will be able to:
  • Discuss indications and contraindications for a lumpectomy
  • Name the complications of lumpectomy
  • Review how a lumpectomy is performed
