Your Breastlink New York Doctors
At Breastlink, we believe the best way to prevent, detect and treat breast cancer involves collaborative care between our breast cancer doctors with full patient participation. Whether you need a screening mammogram, a breast cancer risk assessment, breast cancer treatment or a second opinion, we’re always here for you.
We Are Here For You
Breastlink can assist you with nearly all of your breast health needs. As a leader in breast care, our goal is to provide complete and total care to all of our patients – from initial screening to the successful completion of treatment.
Multidisciplinary Treatment Planning
Breastlink breast health experts thoroughly assess each breast cancer patient diagnosis to ensure a custom, individualized treatment plan is presented. A multidisciplinary treatment planning conference, bringing together the perspective of radiologists, pathologists, surgeons and oncologists, ensures the collective wisdom of the team crafts the optimal breast cancer patient treatment plan.
Whether one is newly diagnosed, has a relapse or is looking for state-of-the-art treatment through clinical trials, getting a breast cancer second opinion is an accepted and encouraged practice amongst breast cancer advocacy groups and physicians who treat patients with breast cancer. Patients shouldn’t worry about offending their doctor – most oncologists expect their patients to seek a second opinion.
Patient navigation helps guide patients and ensures timely diagnosis, treatment, and support.
Breastlink Research Group is guided by one basic goal: to provide our patients access to clinical research that we believe can improve their quantity and quality of life using the most appropriate modalities that science has to offer. We believe that this provides each patient with the care that is right for them– the care that has the greatest potential to maximize effectiveness while minimizing toxic side effects.
The Breastlink surgical team is committed to working closely with patients to determine the breast cancer surgery option that best meets their needs and preferences. We believe it is essential for our patients to have confidence in the decision making process.
Bone Density (DEXA)
A dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scan measures the density and mineral content in bone, most often in the hip or lower spine. It is the most accurate method of determining bone density and potential problems related to bone loss.

Image Guided Biopsy
Breast biopsy experiences will vary based on the type of biopsy being performed. Image-guided biopsies use medical imaging technologies during the process to help physicians locate problem areas. The type of breast biopsy a physician recommends will depend on a patient’s specific circumstances, such as the location and size of a lesion in her breast.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) uses magnets to produce images of internal organs. There is no radiation involved. Breast MRI is an imaging procedure that can provide more detailed information on breast tissue that may not be seen by mammography. Breast MRI is only used as a supplement to, and never a replacement for, mammography.
Low Dose 3D Mammography
Like traditional mammography, 3D mammography uses X-rays to produce images of breast tissue in order to detect lumps, tumors or other abnormalities. 3D mammography is capable of producing more detailed images of breast tissue.
Mammography is a breast imaging procedure that uses X-rays to produce images of breast tissue. Mammography is performed to find abnormalities in a woman’s breasts, such as tumors or lumps, which may not be evident during physical examination. Images produced by mammography, called mammograms, are examined by a radiologist to determine if an abnormality exists.
Breastlink New York is proud to have the Marlene Meyerson Jewish Community Center as their partner. Together, we work to promote the physical, spiritual and mental well-being through a wide range of support services - including art, nutrition, and yoga classes - to foster healing and help alleviate the side effects of cancer in all our patients.
