CARING FOR WOMEN
Jupiter Medical Center is dedicated to providing women throughout the region
a continuum of expert, empathetic, and cedge health and wellness services
at every age and stage of their life journey. During the last four years,
campaign gifts to various aspects of our women’s health services
have made it possible to expand our facilities, advance our technologies
and enhance our capabilities. Now, with your continued generosity, we
are embarking on the creation of a comprehensive Women’s Health
PROTECTING BREAST HEALTH
At Jupiter Medical Center, we believe that every woman deserves to receive
breast screening with state-of-the-art diagnostic technologies, convenient
hours and same-day results. In 2015, our Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center
opened and, today, houses the most advanced and sophisticated, noninvasive
imaging and diagnostic capabilities within a harmoniously designed environment.
All patients receive three-dimensional (3-D) mammography with the lowest
radiation dose. Mammograms are read by one of our board-certified radiologists
with fellowship training, and—unique in our service region—results
are provided on the same day.
Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center diagnostic services also include bone
density screening, genetic risk assessment for breast and gynecological
cancers, counseling and testing, and minimally invasive breast biopsies.
HELPING WOMEN FIGHT CANCER
The collaborative, patient-centered care of our Comprehensive Breast Program
helps to ease the journey for newly diagnosed cancer patients. Sophisticated
approaches to breast cancer surgery available at Jupiter Medical Center
include hidden scar, breast conservation, oncoplastic (aesthetic reshaping
or rebuilding of the breast) and nipple-sparing procedures. Specialists
also provide multidisciplinary expertise in the treatment of other malignancies
that can affect women such as ovarian, cervical and colon cancer. As they
develop customized treatment plans, our physicians provide candid, complete
communication with patients so that they can begin planning for their
course of therapy.
Our expert care encompasses both surgical and medical treatments for conditions
such as intrauterine fibroids, pelvic floor prolapse and incontinence.
Our surgeons have performed more than 1,000 robotic surgical procedures,
in addition to thousands of laparoscopic and open radical surgeries. Jupiter
Medical Center has also recruited some of the best fellowship-trained
and board-certified oncological surgeons during the past five years. These
surgeons are recognized in their fields of oncologic surgery and are often
sought after by patients nationally.
WOMEN’S HEALTH AND WELLNESS
Jupiter Medical Center has made a commitment to serve women’s overall
a number of programs being offered through the Cary Grossman Health &
Wellness Center, including cardiovascular and strength training, personal
training, health coaching, a golf health program, nutrition counseling
and weight management. Jupiter Medical Center also offers a comprehensive
pelvic health rehabilitation program. Our pelvic health physical therapists
have advanced training and experience in assessing and treating specialized
conditions, including pelvic pain, pain and dysfunction in pregnancy,
and incontinence, among others.
WOMEN’S HEALTH INSTITUTE
Women’s services at Jupiter Medical Center are among the very best
in the region, with beautiful, new facilities, highly trained physicians
and top-flight technologies. As the second phase of our Vision. Innovation.
Impact. Campaign gets underway, we are working to expand and enhance these
superb resources to more fully meet the needs of our female patients.
ENHANCED GENETIC TESTING AND RISK ASSESSMENT HEALTH SCREENING
In April 2018, a recommendation was released by the American College of
Radiology and the Society of Breast Imaging stating that all patients
should have a genetic risk assessment at age 30, not only to identify
their risk of breast cancer, but to identify additional areas of medical
concern. Many organizations are adjusting screening ages, including the
American Cancer Society that lowered the recommended screening for colon
cancer from age 50 to age 45 in May 2018.
This clinic will specialize in the management of menopause symptoms and
menopause complicated by other medical conditions. The aim is to help
women regain their quality of life through menopause therapies.
BREAST PAIN CLINIC
For most women, breast pain resolves itself over time, but for others,
the pain is overwhelming and chronic. This clinic will help women evaluate
the cause of their breast pain and provide a variety of medical treatments,
including alternative medicine to better manage the pain.
WOMEN'S LUNG HEALTH PROGRAM
Despite the fact that more and more women in the United States are affected
by lung disease, women frequently do not receive the appropriate care.
The Women’s Lung Health Program at Jupiter Medical Center will become
a unique resource dedicated to the care of female patients with lung disease.
Women’s lung health is a focus for many reasons: women have a higher
rate of asthma than men; in the United States, women with COPD outnumber
men; and the incidence of lung cancer in women continues to increase while
declining in men. More women die from lung cancer than breast cancer,
and two-thirds of them never smoked.
Developed in conjunction with the Thoracic Surgery & Lung Center of
Excellence, the Women’s Lung Health Program will be designed to
optimize care across the lifespan of women with lung conditions and diseases.
STATE-OF-THE-ART TECHNOLOGY AND FACILITIES
With the impressive growth of the Margaret W. Niedland Breast Center, the
need to expand these facilities is imminent and would include augmenting
the equipment, technology, and physicians. The Margaret W. Niedland Breast
Center has become known throughout the region for having cutting-edge
technology not found in most breast and imaging centers, including 3-D
mammography. Jupiter Medical Center is committed to ensuring that we stay
ahead of the curve with the continuous integration of new technology and
techniques, including a 3T MRI with advanced breast imaging capabilities
and higher resolution technology to enhance imaging definition and 3-D
stereotactic biopsy technology that uses computer imaging to guide the
removal of tissue, among others.
