At NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, experienced breast surgeons and their team from NewYork-Presbyterian & Weill Cornell Medicine provide advanced breast surgical services to women, including core needle biopsy, breast-conserving surgery, nipple-sparing mastectomies, and immediate reconstruction. Our breast surgeons have pioneered many of the latest advances in minimally invasive procedures for breast disease today. These approaches result in smaller incisions, less postoperative discomfort, and a quicker return to normal activities. We guide our patients through complex breast disease issues and work in multidisciplinary teams with other breast experts to provide comprehensive and compassionate care, from initial diagnosis to surgery, treatment, and survivorship.

About Our Program

In recent years, significant progress has been made in the early diagnosis and treatment of breast disease. At NewYork-Presbyterian Queens, breast surgeons specializing in the latest advances in breast care work with a team of specialists to provide individualized, comprehensive care to patients, including neoadjuvant and adjuvant chemotherapy, targeted therapies, radiation techniques, genetic information, pathology, breast imaging, oncology nutrition, and the important aspects of compassion and supportive psychological considerations that surround breast disease.

Our breast surgeons diagnose and treat a full spectrum of breast diseases, including breast cancer and benign breast conditions. In all cases, we work collaboratively with our patients, providing informational tools and the support needed to participate confidently in shaping their individual care. All of our surgical services and programs are supported by expert diagnostic and therapeutic care, including our new 3D mammography exam, a clinically proven screening technology that allows for better, more accurate detection of breast disease in the fight against breast cancer. We are also committed to continually pursuing new diagnosis and treatment methods that are less invasive and more effective.
