Dr. Quiet has been in Arizona since 1993. When she came to the Valley, there was no one specializing in breast cancer and in fact only 20% of women were treated with
breast conservation (lumpectomy and radiation) ... 80% were treated with mastectomy.
Because of her concern that women were not getting full information before making their treatment decisions, Dr. Quiet co-founded the Arizona Institute for Breast Health (www.AIBH.org), a non-profit organization that provides a FREE second opinion service for women and their families recently diagnosed with breast cancer.
Dr. Coral Quiet began the breast brachytherapy program in 2000 and it has grown and succeeded over the last 10 years. She helped to pioneer the Mammosite catheter
for the FDA studies and have been involved with that devices long term use and research. After much experience with the device, she realized that it was limited, in fact could only treat 60% of the patients we were seeing with early stage breast cancer
. She has since pioneered a new device, SAVI which has shown great use and is able to treat a lot more women with early stage breast cancer while avoiding high dose to skin and ribs. Newer devices are being worked on that will continue to develop breast cancer treatment options. Dr. Quiet will continue to be a leader in the fight of breast cancer both as a clinician and as an advocate.
