We are the only private facility in NJ with a

fellowship trained breast surgeon and fellowship trained breast imager

working together as a team.

Our program helps people understand, reduce, and manage their risk for developing breast cancer. We want what you want: to prevent breast cancer.

 

A Customized Program

Montclair Breast Center’s high-risk surveillance program is dedicated to helping individuals who are at high risk for developing breast cancer.

Patients at Montclair Breast Center receive a personalized plan. Assembled by our team of experts, the plan educates each woman about her personal risk factors, prevention strategies, and recommended breast monitoring so that any changes can be identified early and handled immediately.

Our specialists assess your condition and treat you with the best tools available.

Patients receive customized guidance about which cancer-preventive medicines, lifestyle modifications, diet improvements, and local support groups (including a quarterly FORCE meeting held in our very office) might be most effective.

One of the biggest benefits for women who are at an increased risk for breast cancer is to have a proactive approach managed by a facility solely dedicated to breast health. At Montclair Breast Center, you have access to a comprehensive team of specialists knowledgeable in all areas of breast wellness, including genetics, risk-lowering drugs, breast imaging, and surgery.

Together, we’re playing offense against breast cancer.

 

Your Appointment

At your first appointment, one of our specialists will meet with you directly. You will review your personal and family history, lifestyle and possible risk factors. You will receive a comprehensive physical exam and in most cases, a 3D mammogram. We may suggest genetic testing if you have a hereditary predisposition to breast cancer.

Based on the results of the initial assessment, additional testing (such as an MRI or Ultrasound) may be recommended and completed during your appointment. Upon conclusion of your appointment, you will receive an individualized plan for risk management.
