About Us

The Team

At Breastnet, we have successfully performed cryotherapy for small breast cancers since 2016.  Our patients have no evidence of residual or recurrent cancer and have no scarring, no history of infections and report no pain.  These ladies continue to live active, vibrant lives and are enthusiastic supporters of cryoablation for breast cancer.

Dr. Belinda Barclay-White, M.D.

As the only woman in a large radiology group I quickly became interested in women’s imaging and offering women a more pleasant experience while having a mammogram. Finding smaller and smaller breast cancers has been my passion for the last 30 years. I am very aware however that surgical treatment has not changed over the last 50 years and I believe we may be overtreating these small slow growing cancers particularly in women over age 50.

I am therefore very excited about being able to offer a new, safe, non-surgical technique to remove small cancers in the breast by literally freezing them to death. We have successfully treated patients with cryotherapy for their breast cancers since 2016 in Arizona. I have a personal interest in this endeavor—I have 3 daughters and 3 granddaughters, and I believe we will be able to offer many generations of women this significantly less-invasive treatment option.

When not interacting with my wonderful patients I enjoy spending time with my family, reading and reconnecting with nature through my vegetable garden, hiking and yoga.

Vanessa Vande-Hei

Vanessa received her Bachelor of Science degree and furthered her career by going back to school for Diagnostic Medical Sonography. She has a national ARDMS Breast certification, and has served at several breast clinics across the western United States.

Through her ongoing struggles with breast cancer, Vanessa found her passion to work in the field of breast ultrasound as a Diagnostic Medical Sonographer. After several surgical treatments for her cancer with multiple re-occurrences, she saw the success of cryoablation working with Dr. Barclay-White. That’s when she decided to get treatment for herself and hasn’t had a reoccurrence since. Her only regret is not getting the treatment sooner. Along with her work as a breast ultrasound technologist working to find breast cancers as early as possible, she loves to work with the incredibly talented cryoablation team.

She is ecstatic to contribute to improving health and educates and encourages other women to be informed about their health, and feel empowered to seek new solutions such as the cutting edge cryoablation technology we utilize, giving patients more options in their cancer fighting tool-kit. She brings experience, care, and compassion, to each patient.

When she’s not in the clinic, you’ll be sure to find Vanessa enjoying time with friends and family and hiking in the beautiful outdoors.
