The Comprehensive Breast Center at Central Ohio Surgical Associates is comprised of surgeons from both the Metropolitan Surgery and Mid-Ohio Divisions.  Our board-certified specialists have experience in the most up-to-date and evidence-based breast care, and have provided consistent and compassionate surgical breast care in the Columbus area for over thirty years.

From benign breast cysts, breast masses, and breast pain, to complex breast cancer cases requiring a multidisciplinary approach, our patients with breast disorders benefit from our knowledge and application of the most advanced surgical techniques and personalized care.

The surgical evaluation of breast problems is an ever-changing field.  Continuity of care is especially important when dealing with breast cancer and chronic breast diseases.  Unlike solo-practitioner breast practices, the multi-physician Comprehensive Breast Center at Central Ohio Surgical Associates ensures continuity of care, availability of physicians, and patient satisfaction.  We are here for you!
