Practice Info

The Weill Cornell Medicine Breast Center is dedicated to delivering the most advanced treatment and comprehensive care for patients with all stages of breast cancer and those at increased risk for developing breast cancer.  

At the Weill Cornell Medicine Breast Center, we provide personalized care and treatment in a compassionate and serene environment. We pride ourselves on being a multidisciplinary center where surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists all work together to bring our patients state-of-the-art evaluations and cutting-edge treatments.

New patients are discussed weekly at multidisciplinary breast cancer tumor boards. This allows us to collaborate with experts in other cancer sub-specialty areas in order to ensure that our patients are receiving the best, most comprehensive treatment.

We also realize that a breast cancer diagnosis can affect your whole life, so we don’t just treat your cancer. We care about your overall physical and emotional well-being, and offer support for issues related to fatigue, anxiety, hormonal symptoms, bone health and more.

As New York’s premier healthcare network, Weill Cornell Medicine is at the forefront of scientific research and clinical trials, enabling us to provide a full range of diagnostic and treatment protocols, including the latest breakthroughs in medicine.

 

Our Team

Our team of world-renowned breast cancer specialists is known for advanced work and published research in:

  • Genetic testing
  • Breast cancer risk analysis
  • Anti-angiogenesis therapy to stop tumors from growing new blood vessels
  • Sentinel lymph node biopsy to determine whether cancer has spread
  • Triple negative breast cancer treatment

 

Treatment

The Weill Cornell Breast Center's expert medical oncologists, surgeons and radiation oncologists have pioneered many of today’s latest advances in breast cancer treatment. In addition to offering standard treatment approaches, we specialize in:

  • Chemotherapy without hair loss using cold-cap technology 
  • Novel anti-cancer agents that target specific pathways involved in the spread of cancer
  • Breast conservation therapy using a technique in which all radiation is delivered at the time of surgery, eliminating the need for follow up radiation therapy for eligible candidates. 
  • Lumpectomy and other minimal surgeries using cryoablation techniques
  • Mastectomy and breast reconstruction that preserves tissue and restores a woman's natural contour, including onco-plastic surgery and skin sparing mastectomy to keep the areola and nipple intact


Clinical Trials

Clinical trials are essential in order to find cures for breast cancer. The breadth and depth of our clinical research program is outstanding, and we offer clinical trials for women with all stages and types of breast cancer. Our patients who participate in clinical trials continue to receive care at the Weill Cornell Breast Center.


Second Opinions

In concert with your referring physician, we are available to offer a second opinion in the form of a consultation with one of our specialists.


Why Choose Us?

We have the latest knowledge, expertise and experience, and we put our patients at the center of everything that we do. We deliver the most promising diagnostic testing and treatments in a supportive and collaborative environment so that our patients and their families receive the best possible outcomes and quality of life.

This has earned the Weill Cornell Breast Center the premier distinction of being named an accredited Breast Center by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a national consortium dedicated to improving the quality of care for breast cancer patients.

We also offer a robust survivorship program, connecting our patients with a community of fellow breast cancer survivors. This program also involves developing a cohesive care plan after treatment to coordinate communications with your primary care physician and other members of your healthcare team.
