About Us

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.

What Our Patients Are Saying


"Dr. Swistel has a huge heart and takes time to explain everything you will be going through from the best to worst scenarios. He is genuinely kind, caring and I highly recommend him and his wonderful staff."

Talking about Leslie E. Cohen, M.D.

"I had my first appointment with Dr Cohen about a month ago. Very caring and to the point.. She is a sweetheart and don't force anything on you. She has a great warm personality. I am scheduled to have surgery with her in August and I am confident that with God's guidance she will do a fantastic job."

"My first visit with Dr. Otterburn put me at ease for a very serious upcoming microsurgery. His manner put me at ease immediately. Kind and gentle, he completely turned my fear into confidence. I highly recommend him. Many years after the successful surgery, I think of him fondly and continue to be deeply grateful."
