Elizabeth Revesz, M.D.

Breast Cancer Surgeon, South New Jersey

I am a breast surgeon; I have trained in this profession and focused my interest and clinical practice in breast surgery. My goal is to provide the best surgical treatment available for women with breast cancer, and those with benign breast problems.

I also treat breast conditions that don’t need surgery, I evaluate patient for breast cancer risk and offer genetic testing for those patients that need it.
I love to educate and explain the disease process to my patients and their family or friends. I do this in order to empower them and help them make the best decision for their care which in turn will give them the best chance of cure with the best quality of life.
I am also interested in the latest medical advances and technologies that can help my patients. I keep up to date with the latest research in breast surgery and treatment options for both malignant as well as benign diseases.
I strive to deliver the best surgical care, and to help women with breast cancer and those at high risk for it.

Breast Surgery Services

The breast surgery services that I offer include procedures that treat breast cancer as well as benign breast diseases. For breast cancer I perform breast conserving surgeries, also known as lumpectomies, partial mastectomies, or wide local excisions. When breast conservation is not possible I am very proficient in simple mastectomies, skin sparing mastectomies, and for patients that qualify, nipple sparing mastectomies. I closely collaborate with plastic surgeons who offer a variety of breast reconstruction options.

For the assessment of the armpit (axilla), a necessary procedure for breast cancer staging, I perform sentinel lymph node biopsies (sampling the lymph nodes) and if needed axillary dissections (removing most of the lymph nodes of the armpit). For benign diseases I perform lumpectomies, cyst removals, skin punch biopsies and central duct excisions. With regards to surgical wounds: my preference is to use hidden scars wherever possible; this means making the incision in a place that allows the scar to be less visible after it heals. I also perform oncoplastic closure of lumpectomy sites which allows me to eliminate the defect created during lumpectomy and to restore the breast’s natural contour.

New Technologies for Breast Cancer

I have been using the SAVI Scout localization system since it was introduced on the market. I feel that this technology benefits my patients greatly. It is used to localize a breast lesion that was already biopsies and a biopsy clip was placed in the breast. The biopsy diagnosis returned and surgery is recommended but the lesion cannot be felt by simply examining the breast. These lesions are detectable only with breast imaging modalities. These can be malignant lesions (breast cancer) or benign lesions (fibroadenoma, sclerotic lesion). They need to detected in the operating room in order to be excised. In the past, a wire was inserted to indicate the location of the biopsy clip. This was done on the day of surgery in the radiology department and then the patient was transported to the surgery department.

sclerotic lesion). They need to detected in the operating room in order to be excised. In the past, a wire was inserted to indicate the location of the biopsy clip. This was done on the day of surgery in the radiology department and then the patient was transported to the surgery department. This was an uncomfortable process that caused delays in surgeries and kept the patient in the hospital longer, not to mention the wire was very sensitive and had the potential of being displaced and causing potential errors.

Now, I use the SAVI Scout localization system; this is a small transmitter that is placed in the lesion, next to biopsy clip. It is done in the radiology department but it can be performed days or even weeks before surgery. This device is about the size of a grain of rice (see photo to the right) and it is not felt by the patient after placement. During the surgery the device (SAVI Scout) and the biopsy clip are removed. I take an X-ray of the specimen I have removed and make sure it contains the clip and the transmitter. It’s a simple and very well tolerated process that allows precise, safe and comfortable breast surgical treatment.
