Breast Cancer

Mount Sinai Brooklyn is home to a highly-skilled breast surgery team that is committed to bringing outstanding care to our convenient Brooklyn location. Our specialists give patients diagnosed with breast cancer and other breast conditions the best possible outcomes with the least possible amount of treatment and side effects. Drawing on the research and resources of the entire Mount Sinai Health System, we tailor the right treatment plan for each of our patients.

We also promote the importance of screening for breast cancer with regular mammograms. Mount Sinai Brooklyn follows strict COVID-19 safety protocols to make sure all services, including mammograms, are safe for our patients. Breast cancer caught early enough requires less treatment and may even be curable.
