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.
