Patricia Teschke, MD

Dr. Teschke brings over ten years of breast surgery experience to Anderson Hospital. She obtained her medical degree from the University of Colorado School of Medicine in Denver and completed General Surgery residency in Norfolk, Virginia. She is a member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

Dr. Teschke values a patient-centered approach, providing personalized care and support throughout the journey from diagnosis to treatment follow-up. When it comes to cancer treatment, she believes early detection should be a priority, “A patient may not even notice a mass or changes to the area, as breast cancer often does not have noticeable symptoms at first. Screening mammograms, which can detect changes within the breast earlier than exams alone, are our most important tool in the fight against breast cancer.”

She performs in office procedures, including ultrasound-guided biopsy and aspiration, and operative procedures, including breast conservation therapy (lumpectomy), skin-sparing mastectomy, nipple-sparing mastectomy, sentinel lymph node biopsy, and axillary dissection.

In addition to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, Dr. Teschke also sees patients with other breast conditions, including mastitis or breast abscesses, fibroadenomas, breast cysts, and mastalgia (breast pain).
