Prep, Recovery & Support
From diagnosis through treatment, our team works closely to provide you with coordinated, integrated, expert care. While the Friedman Center is solely dedicated to appointments with your plastic surgeon, we collaborate with all of your care partners throughout the Northwell Health system.
You can expect to visit your medical and radiation oncologists, breast surgeon, genetic counselor, and more at one of the many Northwell Health cancer centers, imaging centers, hospitals, and physician partner offices. Major surgery, including breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction, is performed at one of the Northwell Health hospitals, and smaller surgical procedures are performed at outpatient surgery centers. We do not perform surgery onsite at the Friedman Center.
You have many decisions to make about breast reconstruction. It’s common to have several appointments with your doctors during this time. Our team is happy to meet with you as often as necessary to ensure that you’re comfortable with the decision-making process and your treatment plan. We’re here to help you every step of the way.
The Friedman Center has resources to support you at every stage of this journey.
