Breast Health

  • Breakthroughs are where we start.

    We know that behind every procedure is a person in need, not just a problem to be solved. That’s why Einstein’s Breast Health Program brings the best of our network to your side every day — from our dedicated team of surgeons, radiologists and patient navigators that guide you at each step to our innovative life-saving technologies. And as one of only a few hospitals in the U.S. to offer a 3-D breast imaging technique that makes it easier to find abnormalities in dense breast tissue, known as Digital Breast Tomosynthesis (DBT), our patients know they are getting the best treatment possible.

    A New Era in Breast Care

    With leading technologies and a brand new location, Einstein Healthcare Network has strengthened its position as a top breast treatment provider in the region.

    Einstein Medical Center Montgomery's Women's Center is a new, state-of-the-art facility in a comfortable setting in Montgomery County that features:

    • A 30-member team led by award-winning physicians Dr. Jennifer Simmons and Dr. Debra Somers Copit
    • Nurse navigators to guide you every step of the way.
    • Fast Track. If an abnormality is spotted, you will be evaluated within 48 hours.
    • Personalized care. We go the extra mile for our patients.
    • Previous Screenings. If you have received a mammogram at another facility, we will obtain the images and reports for you, so you don't have to.
    • Real-time readings so you have your results before you walk out the door.
    • Convenient hours, including evening and weekend mammogram appointments.
    • Regional Network, Customized Treatment

      Einstein's breast health program is part of an entire healthcare network offering services throughout the region. Your treatment includes a team of surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and nurse navigators. We offer specialized care in locations throughout Philadelphia and Montgomery County, featuring:

      • Ongoing review of patient care plans. Before deciding on the best course of treatment for individual patients, our specialists gather to discuss each case.
      • Prompt mammography appointments. If needed, appointments can be made as soon as the same or next day.
      • Referral appointments. Our breast surgeons see referrals as quickly as possible.
      • Multiple, convenient locations. Four facilities offer mammograms.

      Leading Technology

      Einstein uses the most advanced techniques in cancer care:

      • 3D imaging. Known as digital breast tomosynthesis, this mammogram technique allows radiologists to see smaller areas of the breast and to look through dense breast tissue to spot abnormalities. Einstein Medical Center Philadelphia and Einstein Medical Center Montgomery have been designated Breast Imaging Centers of Excellence (BICOE) by the American College of Radiology (ACR).
      • Sentinel node biopsy. This procedure pinpoints which lymph nodes affected by breast cancer, resulting in fewer removals.
      • Skin-sparing mastectomy. Skilled surgeons perform immediate reconstruction of the breast at the time of mastectomy surgery with a patient’s own skin to create more natural-looking breast.
      • Minimally invasive biopsies. Our team works hard to preserve your tissue, offering needles biopsies that don't require an operating room visit.
