Welcome to Hudson Valley Surgical Group's Breast Care Specialists page. If you are visiting for the first time, you or someone close to you may be faced with the threat of breast cancer. We understand that this can be a very difficult time for our patients and their families because breast cancer is as much of an emotional illness as it is a physical one.

The delicate intricacies of a breast cancer diagnosis have prompted the need for patient-centered breast cancer treatment. That's where we come in. Early detection, all-inclusive treatment and natural restoration are at the core of the Minimally Invasive Center of HVSG's Breast Care team and imperative to our patients' recovery. You've come to the right place.


Breast Care requires a multi-faceted treatment plan and therefore the Minimally Invasive Center of Hudson Valley Surgical Group offers every patient a full range of services to treat both the physical and emotional hurdles that often come with a breast cancer diagnosis. The first step Hudson Valley Surgeons take is a full evaluation and risk-assessment catered to each patient leveraging selective imaging apparatus.  The evaluation will also include genetic tests to identify high-risks issues and will help determine a custom approach to each patient.  In addition, our Breast Cancer Surgeons are the experts in Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) techniques and offer patients a better quality-of-life approach to surgery. Our services include:


Hudson Valley Surgical takes genetic testing further to include the genetics of the tumor to determine the optimal post-surgical plan with an eye to avoiding unnecessary radiation or chemotherapy. In addition, since breast cancer often links too many other potential cancers, the surgeons include prevention methods in the post-surgical plans as well; in some cases the introduction of an Oncologist prior to surgery may be required.
