The Weill Cornell Breast Center's team of experts has pioneered many of the latest advances in breast cancer treatment today. Caring for patients in all stages of breast cancer, we focus not only on treatment of the disease, but also on breast reconstruction approaches that preserve tissue and restore a woman's natural contour.
Our Breast Center's multidisciplinary medical team includes radiologists, pathologists, surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists. By working together, we provide our patients with comprehensive cancer treatment and state-of-the-art care. Our patient-centered philosophy creates a compassionate and supportive environment where patients are encouraged to take an active role in their treatment plan, while benefiting from our clinical and surgical expertise.
We are also committed to continually pursuing new treatment methods that are more effective and less invasive. While our first priority is treating a patient's cancer, we also believe it is vitally important to restore the highest quality of life. Whether that involves breast augmentation or breast reduction surgery, we provide advanced reconstructive services designed to repair the affected area and restore a sense of normality to a patient’s life.

Dr. Rache Simmons, chief of Breast Cancer Surgery at Weill Cornell Medicine, discussed a less invasive treatment option for breast cancer on CBS This Morning.
"I have seen Dr. Swistel for a benign breast condition for several years. He is simply brilliant. And Kind. And brilliantly, kindly professional to the highest degree. I had seen many breast surgeons and specialists before Dr. Swistel. He is simply unequalled."
"Dr. Cigler is the best Oncologist that my mother has seen after her Breast Cancer diagnosis this year. She is tough but gentle and has helped my mom get through the difficult process of the diagnosis. She has always shown outmost professionalism and is very knowledgeable in her job as an Oncologist. I highly recommend her because I feel that she is the type of doctor that you can see if you have an unfortunate diagnosis such as my mother. The type of doctor that will give you the straight talk and tell you your prognosis and what are your chances of survival. I personally would much rather have a doctor that tells it how it is then one that does not give you the full prognosis and withholds information from you."
"This is my second experience with Dr. Simmons. The first was in 2014 for a breast excision. The second unfortunately was for stage 0 breast cancer. Dr. Simmons exudes competence and compassion. She is clear in her explanations and positive about the prognosis. NY Presbyterian is excellent in every way."
