The Weill Cornell Breast Center's team of experienced breast surgeons have pioneered many of the latest advances in breast cancer treatment today. Caring for patients in all stages of breast cancer, as well as those with benign breast conditions, 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.

The Center's multidisciplinary medical team includes radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists. By working together, we provide our patients with seamless overall 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 while benefiting from our clinical and surgical expertise.

In 2011, the Weill Cornell Breast Center's outstanding quality of care and positive patient outcomes have earned the Center the distinction of being named an accredited Breast Center by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) , a national consortium of professional organizations dedicated to the improvement of the quality of care for breast cancer patients. The Weill Cornell Breast Center is one of only two NAPBC-accreditated breast centers in New York City. Dr. Rache Simmons, professor of surgery and a nationally-recognized breast cancer expert, led the NAPBC-accreditation process for the Weill Cornell Breast Center.

We are committed to continually pursuing new methods for more effective and less invasive treatment of breast diseases. While our first priority is treating a patient's cancer, we also believe it is vitally important to provide surgical treatments that restore the highest quality of life after surgery.
