Mammogram and Annual Exam On the Same Day? Absolutely… at The Women’s Center!

The Women’s Center of Orlando is known for having the best in technology, best in quality health care providers and best in convenience for its patient in all six locations. We have even made it possible to book your mammogram and annual exam in the same visit! We also offer 3D Mammograms to better serve you, because Dr. Gearity and the Women’s Center absolutely believe in early detection.

3D Mammography is an extraordinary breakthrough in cancer screening and detection that we are currently offering at our Hunter’s Creek office. Our new breast Tomosynthesis system brings a totally new dimension to breast health awareness by offering greater clarity and more certainty. This amazingly innovative new technology allows doctors to see breast tissue detail in a way never before possible to assist in finding breast cancer at the earliest stage possible, when it is absolutely most treatable. When breast cancer is found in its earliest stage, the five-year survival rate is 98%. Right now, almost 40,000 women a year die from breast cancer. We feel that number should be ZERO!

The 3D mammography™ that The Women’s Center utilizes detects 41% more invasive breast cancers and reduces false positives by up to 40%. This means one simple thing: early detection.

Since 2011, over 8 million women have benefited from this technology, the first clinically proven, superior 3D mammography approved by the FDA. This 3D mammography technology allows The Women’s Center to see masses and distortions associated with cancers significantly more clearly than conventional 2D mammography.
