Breast Cancer

The North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute’s Breast Cancer Center offers a multidisciplinary team of physicians and other healthcare professionals who provide the very best in comprehensive, compassionate breast cancer care.

Our medical, surgical and radiation oncologists work together with experts from medical genetics, pathology, rehabilitation medicine, fertility and other disciplines to develop patient-focused, consensus-based treatment plans with the potential for participation in clinical trials. We customize breast cancer care so patients receive the most-advanced, least-invasive treatments with the fewest side effects.

Our Breast Navigator will work with patients and their support team to help access the care needed after a positive diagnosis, answer any questions and help with finding support and resources. In addition, the Center offers a broad range of programs and support groups to help patients and family members cope with issues related to life during and after cancer treatment.

For added convenience, screenings, diagnostic imaging, breast cancer diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and assessment of cancer risks are all available at one location – the North Shore-LIJ Cancer Institute’s Monter Cancer Center in Lake Success.
