Breast Surgery Clinical Trials

<P>The Division of Breast Surgery is committed to fulfilling Stony Brook’s mission of excellence in research, and to advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and population health.</P>
<P><STRONG>Participation in our clinical trials is always completely voluntary</STRONG>, and never interferes with the normal standards for patient care.</P>
<P>The Division’s research programs are focused on novel approaches to optimizing surgical outcomes, as well as other treatment strategies to improve patient care, such as combining surgery with drug therapy.</P>
<P>Recent funding in support of the Division’s research has been provided by the <A href="; target=_blank>National Cancer Institute</A> through its cooperative affiliation with the American College of Surgeons Oncology Group (<A href="; target=_blank>ACOSOG</A>).</P>
