Article on Weill Cornell Breast Center's Interdisciplinary Care

As principal or co-investigators in numerous multicenter clinical trials, Weill Cornell Breast Center surgeons continue to investigate:

  • chemoprevention of breast cancer in high-risk women
  • indications for drug therapy in postmenopausal women with ductal carcinoma in situ
  • digital infrared imaging to enhance breast cancer detection
  • the role of intraoperative radiation therapy
  • efficacy of pre- and post-treatment imaging to determine residual disease in patients with
  • invasive breast carcinoma undergoing cryoablation
  • quality of life for women undergoing nipple sparing mastectomy and different types of mastectomy
  • outcome studies looking at recurrence, survival, and satisfaction among patients having breast cancer surgery

In addition, they have studied devices that aid in precision targeting for partial breast radiation therapy and conducted a feasibility study on breast specific gamma imaging to improve positive predictive value in patients with mammographic and/or sonographic abnormalities requiring breast biopsy.

Under the direction of plastic and reconstructive surgeon Jason A. Spector, MD, the Laboratory for Bioregenerative Medicine and Surgery seeks to advance various aspects of tissue engineering. Dr. Spector's research interests include translational applications of tissue engineering and stem cell research focusing on novel technologies such as biomaterials and devices that can be applied to the clinical realm.
