Alice M. Police, M.D., FACS is the Regional Director of Breast Surgery in Westchester County at the Northwell Health Cancer Institute. Known as an innovator in breast surgery, Dr. Police is now making more comprehensive care available to patients at the Northwell Health Cancer Institute here at Phelps, and at the Breast Institute at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco, NY.
Dr. Police’s cutting-edge approach involves three different innovative surgical techniques, which typically have a higher likelihood of resulting in “clear margins” and offer a faster recovery time. Clear margins mean that there are no cancer cells at the outer edges of the surgical site, indicating that all the cancer has been successfully removed. These techniques use a guidance system called SAVI SCOUT. This system uses radar technology to allow for greater precision during surgery.
