Hidden Scar® Breast Surgery
In 2019, NYU Winthrop Hospital became the first Hidden Scar® Center of Excellence in Long Island, NY, offering an advanced approach to breast cancer surgery. This breakthrough for women diagnosed with breast cancer removes cancerous tissue but hides visible scarring.
Hidden Scar Advantages
Approximately 253,000 women annually are diagnosed with breast cancer requiring surgery and more than 65 percent of them are unhappy with the remaining scar. Now NYU Winthrop surgeons can help eradicate breast cancer and offer a better cosmetic outcome. Hidden Scar is a nipple-sparing technique and can be used whether a patient is having a breast-conserving lumpectomy or a mastectomy.
