MedStar Health Opens Breast Cancer Center at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital

The Breast Center Will Offer Cutting Edge Technologies, Convenient Care

BALTIMORE— Bringing together the region’s top breast cancer experts under one roof, MedStar Health Cancer Network opened the Breast Center at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital on Oct. 29.

The center, located in the Smyth building, will unite a multidisciplinary team of oncologists, breast surgeons, radiation oncologists, reconstruction surgeons, radiologists and genetic counselor. It is the first center to be opened at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital dedicated solely to breast care.

MedStar Good Samaritan has cutting edge technologies and services including genetic counseling; an infusion center; onsite CT, MRI, ultrasound, mammography, and breast biopsy; clinical trials and radiation therapy. It has the Varian Halcyon system, a new cancer technology that advances radiotherapy treatment. Surgical services include intraoperative radiation therapy, localization with Savi Scout and oncoplastic and reconstructive surgery.

The center will be led by Maen Farha, MD, a breast surgeon who has been diagnosing and managing malignant and benign breast disease for more than 20 years, and Dr. Michelle Townsend-Watts, MD, chief of breast imaging for MedStar Union Memorial and MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital.

Dr. Farha said the center will follow the practice’s commitment to treating the disease holistically.

“After 50 years of service to the community, our comprehensive Breast Center opening and the Cancer Center few months ago are a demonstration of the commitment to serve the Good Sam community and the Baltimore area for another 50 years,” Dr. Farha said. “Our comprehensive Breast Center is committed to engaging the patients and their families as members of the patient’s care team. Our multi-disciplinary breast cancer clinic brings the patients and their families in an authentic face-to-face discussion and development of individualized treatment plan. Our team has been refining that very successful model for six years with outstanding patient feedback.”

The breast care team, partnering with MedStar Health Research Institute and Avident Health, also won a $475,000 grant from Genentech to test the use of mHealth (mobile health) interventions to promote teamwork and patient engagement in breast cancer care. Genentech is a company known for its innovation in breast cancer care.

Genentech is developing the mobile app for wide release with feedback from MedStar Health. Patients can use it to view detailed information about their case, get updates on appointments, and more. Doctors and other medical experts can use it to collaborate on a patient’s care plan. It supplements, but doesn’t replace, the in person meetings doctors and oncology experts have with the patient about how their care is being tailored.

The Breast Center will complement other recent enhancements to cancer services offered at MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital, which celebrates its 50th anniversary this year. In April, the 7,800-square-foot MedStar Franklin Square Cancer Center at Loch Raven Campus opened featuring a state-of-the-art infusion center, a pharmacy and more.

MedStar Health Baltimore Cancer Program Honored for Exceeding Standards

BALTIMORE—(July 11, 2018)—MedStar Health’s four Baltimore area hospitals have been granted a three-year accreditation with commendation – indicating it exceeded the standard requirements – for their regional cancer program by The Commission on Cancer (CoC), a quality program of the American College of Surgeons.

To earn the CoC accreditation, the MedStar Health Cancer Network must meet or exceed the organization’s quality care standards and maintain excellence in patient-centered care. The cancer program is reevaluated every three years.

The MedStar Health Cancer Network exceeded standard requirements in six areas: clinical research accrual, cancer registry education, public reporting of outcomes, oncology nursing care, accuracy of data, and Rapid Quality Reporting System. The Rapid Quality Reporting System is a reporting and quality improvement tool from CoC that helps hospitals track their quality of cancer care. The program is at four Baltimore-area hospitals: MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, MedStar Union Memorial Hospital, MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital and MedStar Harbor Hospital.

MedStar Health Cancer Network Adopts Advanced Breast Cancer Technology

Dr. Maen Farha First in State to Use Savi SCOUT to Locate and Remove Breast Lumps

Advanced Breast Cancer TechnologyBALTIMORE—(August 15, 2017)Dr. Maen Farha, director of the MedStar Union Memorial and MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital breast centers, is the first and only physician in the state to offer patients electromagnetic wave technology to locate and remove breast lumps that are not detectable by touch. The medical device, approved by the Food and Drug Administration, uses real time guidance to deliver a reflector directly into the breast lump, giving a precise target that will be removed with the lump during surgery, up to 30 days later.

The standard treatment, known as wire localization and developed over three decades ago, requires a radiologist to insert a wire through the breast to the tumor, to guide the surgeon to the target tissue. But with the wire extending out of the breast skin until the biopsy or surgery, the procedure can be uncomfortable and plagued by scheduling challenges, making the patient experience less than optimal.

“The new technology uses radar to triangulate the reflector already placed in the breast tumor,” said Dr. Farha. “Patients can have the reflector inserted anytime within a week before the surgery, so the convenience factor alone is an advancement that we are pleased to be able to offer. More importantly is the level of precision afforded by this technology gives us an increased probability of removing all the cancer.”

During the lumpectomy procedure, Dr. Farha scans the breast with a hand held device that employs an infrared light and a micro-impulse signal to detect the location of the reflector. Real-time, audible and visual indicators then assist him to accurately locate the reflector, along with the target tissue, and surgically remove them.  The precision tracking also results in better cosmetic outcomes.

MedStar Health Cancer Network to Increase Colorectal Cancer Screenings

Colorectal Cancer image for news releaseBaltimore—(April 25, 2016)—The MedStar Health Cancer Network has joined forces with the American Cancer Society (ACS), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the National Colorectal Cancer Roundtable by pledging to support the “80% by 2018” initiative – a nationwide goal to increase colorectal cancer screening rates to 80% in the next two years.

The Cancer Network, comprised of MedStar Franklin Square Medical Center, MedStar Good Samaritan, MedStar Harbor and MedStar Union Memorial Hospitals, joins the shared commitment to raise the bar on the percentage of adults aged 50 and older who get regular colorectal screenings from 65% in 2010 to 80% in 2018. By achieving an 80% screening rate for colorectal cancer by 2018, research shows that 277,000 cases of colorectal cancer and 203,000 colorectal cancer deaths would be prevented by 2030.

“In our ongoing commitment to keep our community healthy, the Cancer Network is proud to take this pledge and unite with organizations nationwide in the fight to prevent and eliminate colorectal cancer,” said Albert J. Aboulafia, MD, Medical Director, MedStar Health Cancer Network. “Colorectal cancer is highly preventable and treatable, but you have to catch it early. By raising awareness of the importance of early detection and working together to increase screening rates, the “80% by 2018” initiative will help save thousands of lives.”

Colorectal cancer is the nation’s second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in the U.S. by men and women combined; however it is one of only few cancers that can be prevented. Both highly detectable and treatable, colorectal cancer can be prevented through screening. Through screening, doctors are able to find and remove hidden growths (called “polyps”) in the colon, before they become cancerous.

The goal is shared by health care providers, health systems, communities, businesses, community health centers, government, non-profit organizations and patient advocacy groups, among others, who are committed to getting more people screened for colorectal cancer to prevent more cancers and save lives.
