Meet our experts
From a young age Dr. Adelaja knew she wanted to pursue a career in medicine. Her training led her from her home state of Texas to Fresno, where she completed her surgical residency at the UCSF Fresno Center for Medical Education and Research – later joining the Center as a member of the surgical teaching faculty. Dr. Adelaja’s experience working with the local population, and her family’s own experience with breast cancer led her to devote her practice to breast surgery and to complete a fellowship in breast oncology. Dr. Adelaja is a strong advocate for her patients and is dedicated to treating them as if they were her own family. She is excited to share her passion for compassionate care with the Central Valley community.

Services we offer
3D Digital mammography

These new technologies help us detect cancers earlier than ever before. Our digital mammography unit is the gold standard series in mammography.
Affirm breast biopsy
The Affirm Breast Biopsy Guidance System has a lateral arm upright biopsy accessory that allows technologists more flexibility to access challenging lesion locations. Instead of laying down on a table, the patient sits in a specialized chair, allowing for a more comfortable experience.
Stereotactic breast biopsy
The Lorad MultiCare Platinum breast biopsy table is designed so you can lie down during your procedure. The table provides 360-degree access to breast lesions while keeping you as comfortable as possible. We offer the latest advances in stereotactic technology. This gives us excellent ability to identify and characterize masses, calcifications and any other abnormalities.
Bone densitometry (Dexa)
The GE Lunar Prodigy Primo densitometer provides our physicians with state-of-the-art information to tell if you have low bone density. This tool also helps us tell if you’re at risk for fractures due to osteoporosis. We chose this densitometer because it offers you breakthrough precision and the accuracy of direct digital technology.
When you need an ultrasound, you deserve high-quality images. Our 2D diagnostic ultrasound system provides extraordinary performance to suit a broad range of clinical needs. The M5 offers brilliant color imaging and excellent 2D performance to generate higher-quality images.
Advanced breast imaging technology is also available in the Hanford Medical Pavilion, in the lab and in the imaging center. Breast MRI is critical for detecting breast cancer and other breast abnormalities. It’s an important supplement to mammography and ultrasound.
