Patient Care

At The Breast Center -- Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, our multidisciplinary team is dedicated to providing you with the utmost comprehensive and individualized breast health care for preventative screening, diagnostic imaging, and the surgical removal and follow-up treatment for malignant and benign diseases of the breast. Whether you need an initial diagnosis or are looking for a second opinion, our state-of-the art breast imaging technology and expert pathologists can provide a rapid and precise diagnosis so that you can begin treatment as soon as possible. 

If you have a malignancy, it is important to realize that significant strides have been made in the early diagnosis and treatment for breast cancer, making it a highly curable type of cancer. Even so, we understand that it is still normal to feel nervous about the disease and the treatment process. With a patient- and family-centered approach, our focus is on making sure you feel comfortable and confident during the entire treatment process. We care for the whole person, not just the tumor. Each of our patients is an individual; we understand that cancer touches every aspect of your being and your life. By seeing patients at the Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale-New Haven, we work with a team of renowned cancer-care specialists to support your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs during this difficult time. 

As faculty of the Yale University School of Medicine Department of Surgery, our surgeons are committed to revolutionizing medical knowledge and treatment for breast cancer and overall breast health. They continually integrate the latest and most-advanced treatments and therapies, such as personalized medicine, into their practice. Personalized medicine means that we can find out about your cancer’s most fundamental biology so that we can choose a treatment plan that is specifically targeted to your cancer type.
