NYU Winthrop is Long Island’s first Hidden Scar® Center of Excellence.
Breast Cancer Surgery
With No Visible Scar
Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Winthrop's Breast Health Center was first in Nassau County to be accredited by the
National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC). Now we are the first on Long Island to offer Hidden Scar
surgery, a sophisticated new approach to breast cancer surgery that hides the scar so effectively it’s virtually invisible.
A specially trained Hidden Scar surgeon makes a small incision—much smaller than with traditional breast surgery—
in a hidden area, beneath the breast, for example. The cancerous tissue is removed through that incision, thus
preserving the natural shape of the breast. Less accessible tissue is illuminated with special technology to be seen
clearly by the surgeon and removed with virtually no scarring.
At NYU Winthrop, we have always understood the powerful emotions that can overwhelm any woman dealing with
a breast cancer diagnosis. That’s why we are so pleased to be the first to make available this remarkable surgical
advance. To learn more, call 1-866-WINTHROP or visit nyuwinthrop.org.
