2nd Annual Dubin Breast Cancer Symposium

Dubin Breast Center Luncheon 9.30.13 001 (1)

NYC Plastic Surgeon Dr. Carlin Vickery at 2nd Annual Breast Cancer Luncheon Symposium

I had the privilege of being on and attending the symposium panel for the 2nd Annual Dubin Breast Center Fact vs. Fiction Luncheon, which is dedicated to informing the population on breast cancer and the current modalities of treatment. The event was a unique opportunity for everyone involved with the center to hear and share insider information on breast cancer, which isn’t typically well reported in the press.

The Dubin Breast Center is located at Mount Sinai Medical Center, which is exclusively dedicated to the treatment of breast cancer. Attendees included friends, patients, donors and other interested parties affiliated with the Dubin Breast Center, with doctors in the fields of breast surgery, radiology and oncology to name a few.

Eva Dubin, a breast cancer survivor herself, believes that breast cancer needs to be treated in a holistic fashion so patients can have the optimal outcome and treatment, all within the same building. With Angelina Jolie’s recent procedures in the news, we were able to touch on a new procedure, nipple sparing mastectomy reconstruction, and the importance of carefully selecting patients who are candidates for this procedure.
