• Groundbreaking breast cancer treatment changing local lives

    Updated:

    ATLANTA - A local woman is on a fast track to recovery from breast cancer thanks to a groundbreaking procedure.
     
    Doctors at Emory University Hospital Midtown can now perform surgery and radiation in one day.
     
    After surgeons remove a tumor, the medical team works together to use a targeted radiation machine on the problem area.
     
    Channel 2’s Linda Stouffer talked to Anita Warrington before her surgery. She said the one-day treatment is a phenomenal option.
     
    "I walk in, prayer each day, and ever since I have been diagnosed, I have been very relieved because I know that I'm in good hands all the way,” Warrington said.
                   
    Warrington is now recovering at home.
     
    Now that the first surgery at the hospital was a success, doctors have more of the procedures scheduled for the next few weeks.
     
    The treatment is only available to women in early stages of cancer or with slow-growing tumors.
