Breast Surgery

Advances in breast surgery have led to more women benefiting from minimally invasive approaches and better cosmetic outcomes. The breast surgeons of NewYork-Presbyterian Medical Group Westchester offer the latest approaches to breast surgery, including:

  • Oncoplastic lumpectomy, a breast tumor removal technique where the breast is left intact to achieve better cosmetic outcomes.
  • Skin-sparing mastectomy, which removes internal breast tissue and inserts an implant, but leaves the patient’s skin intact.  
  • Nipple-preserving mastectomy, (an option for women whose breast cancer has not invaded nipple tissue) which removes internal breast tissue and inserts an implant, but preserves the breast skin and nipple.  
  • Sentinel node biopsy and axillary lymph node removal, an approach that examines lymph nodes surrounding the tumor site to see if cancer has spread past the breast.
  • Surgery for recurrent breast disease

Patients can undergo these procedures at NewYork-Presbyterian Westchester (formerly Lawrence Hospital).

Our breast surgeons may also refer patients to a genetic counselor if they have a family and/or personal history of breast cancer. The genetic counselor can assess a patient’s future risk of developing cancer with genetic testing and by using a customized breast screening program.
