Breast Surgery Fellowship at Maimonides Breast Center

 

Maimonides Breast Center was founded in 2006 and is the only fully accredited Breast Center in Brooklyn, NY. 

Maimonides was awarded Full Accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), administered by the American College of Surgeons, placing it among an elite 5% of programs in the nation.

In addition, we are the first and only Brooklyn-based program of its kind to be designated an American College of Radiology Center of Excellence in multiple areas: mammography, ultrasound, MRI of the breast, stereotactic biopsy, ultrasound biopsy and MRI biopsy.

Maimonides Breast Center offers comprehensive screening, diagnostic, medical and surgical breast services, as well as nutrition and genetics counseling. We see approximately 7,000 visits in the breast surgery division, and perform over 20,000 mammograms per year.  

Maimonides Cancer Center is Brooklyn’s only full-service cancer center, and earned the 2016 Outstanding Achievement Award from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.  Maimonides is one of a select group of 22 accredited cancer programs across the nation to receive this honor, and one of only two in New York State for the year 2016.

We welcome physicians who wish to specialize in diseases of the breast through our Breast Surgery Fellowship Program.
