Patient Care


Responding to the special needs of women on Long Island, Stony Brook's Carol M. Baldwin Breast Care Center named in honor of breast cancer awareness activist Carol M. Baldwin provides comprehensive management of breast cancer and benign breast disease. It is located in our Cancer Center (map/directions) on the campus of University Medical Center.

The multidisciplinary Breast Surgery Service brings together the expertise of clinical faculty and staff from the departments of surgery; medicine; radiology; radiation oncology; and obstetrics, gynecology and reproductive medicine. Breast surgeons and mammographers work side by side to complete the entire evaluation at the patient's first visit.

The Breast Care Center offers convenient outpatient breast surgery, as well as stereotactic biopsy procedures. Both radiation and medical oncologists are available for consultation. Specialized lymphedema treatment, if needed, is available through the physical therapy department.

In May 2009, the Breast Care Center was granted three-year/full accreditation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), and was the first breast center in the State of New York to receive NAPBC accreditation.

Established in 1993, the Breast Care Center continues to serve as the model of the highest quality breast care on Long Island. It was the first of its kind here, and still is the only one of its kind to provide multidisciplinary care. For more information, please visit the Center's home page. See profile of the Breast Care Center in the 2005 annual report, Cancer Care at Stony Brook University Hospital.
