Comprehensive Breast Care and Surgery

The health of your breasts depends on proper and comprehensive care. That’s why Carolinas Center for Surgery provides specialist treatment of malignant and benign breast disease. Based on our prognosis, you may be recommended for one of the following therapies:

  • Minimally invasive breast biopsy
  • Lumpectomy (breast conservation)
  • Mastectomy
  • Benign breast disease management
  • Other collaborative measures

Our approach requires a close relationship among doctors — at keystone of our clinic right here in Morehead City. You’ll get the advantage of the many options provided by our team of Dr. Mindy Merritt, a fellowship trained breast surgeon, and Dr. Peter Klainer, our esteemed reconstructive and plastic surgeon.

In addition to our highly qualified surgeons, we also maintain the equipment to perform breast biopsies and ultrasounds in the office. It’s our quality of care and level of distinction that allow our team to rival the finest academic centers.

Credentials aside — this care is about you.
