What to expect during Lumpectomy

The surgeon will start by making an incision over the lump being taken out with a 15 blade loaded on a #3 knife handle. Lumpectomy incisions are usually pretty small, so senn retractors or skin hooks may be used at the beginning, and army-navys might be used depending on how deep the tissue is dissected.

Adson pickups, metzenbaum scissors, and a bovie will be used for dissection. The lump will be grasped by either an Allis clamp or kocher, and then will be removed from the incision. The surgeon will then mark the lump with a directional stitch, and you will pass off the specimen to the circulator quickly so it can be taken to pathology.
Margins may be taken if the specimen is taken to pathology, and they say that more tissue needs to be taken.
