About Me

If you or a loved one requires surgery, including breast cancer surgery, look to Wade Dosch, MD, FACS, a board-certified surgeon at Avera McKennan Hospital & University Health Center and Avera Medical Group Comprehensive Breast Care in Sioux Falls, SD.

Innovative Breast Cancer Surgical Procedures

In addition to providing effective surgical procedures to remove breast cancer, Dr. Dosch is dedicated to improving cosmetic outcomes for each patient. He achieves this through advanced training in specialized surgical procedures, such as:

  • Intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) – Includes radiation during surgery which may eliminate the need for additional radiation or shorten the course of radiation
  • Oncoplasty – Combines techniques for removing cancer along with plastic surgery methods to improve the appearance of breasts
  • Lumpectomy – Conserves the breasts while providing the same recurrence prevention as mastectomy
  • Nipple-sparing mastectomy – Preserves the nipple and skin of the breast for future reconstruction

Breast Cancer Surgery Consultations & Second Opinions

If you or a loved one receives a breast cancer diagnosis, receive all of the information you need to make an informed treatment decision by scheduling a consultation or second opinion appointment with Dr. Dosch. He’ll offer treatment recommendations based on your unique circumstances and wishes.

Comprehensive Surgical Care for All

In addition to breast cancer surgery, Dr. Dosch also performs a wide variety of general surgery procedures, including:

  • Gallbladder surgery
  • Hernia surgery
  • Bowel surgery
  • Screening endoscopy
  • Screening colonoscopy

“As a patient, it can be scary to see a surgeon,” acknowledges Dr. Dosch. “That’s why I encourage everyone to ask questions and make sure you’re comfortable and understand what’s happening with your body and how your surgeon can help you get better.”

Active Lifestyle

In his free time, Dr. Dosch enjoys spending time with his family, coaching softball, working on cars and house projects, and pheasant and deer hunting.

Doctor Dosch was very informative and explained exactly what he was doing during each step of the procedure (lancing and draining a cyst). He frequently asked if the pain level was ok and would stop if needed. Him and his nurse were both very friendly and answered any questions I had!

As always, a culture of care exists when dealing with the Avera system at any level. Patient care and welfare lies at the core of their service provided. The medical and peripheral staff provide a caring and kind environment which serves to place patients at ease in a moment of vulnerability when their health is compromised. I have personally had this experience each and every time I have been seen for health related issues at any Avera facility.
