Anthony Cahan

Anthony Cahan, MD, Chief of Breast Surgery at Northern Westchester Hospital, has been practicing medicine for more than 35 years. He attended medical school at Cornell University Medical College and completed his residency at New York Hospital Weill Cornell Medical Center. Today, his practice is focused exclusively on breast concerns, diagnoses, cancers and treatments. He has been named a Top Doctor by Castle Connolly for more than ten consecutive years.Dr. Cahan wrote a landmark aesthetic and oncologic paper on the use of the Box-To-X incision and closure, a then-novel technique for a skin-sparing mastectomy. This method has now been embraced by the medical community and used many times over the years, yielding impeccable results for patients.In his three decades as a surgeon, Dr. Cahan has participated in revolutionary clinical trials, keeping a close eye on scientific developments in breast care and adapting his practice according to current innovations. Because of his research findings, he's often turned to targeted chemotherapy, endocrine therapy and immunologic therapy over surgery, when possible, to deliver the best outcomes for his patients.Dr. Cahan takes a warm, personal approach to care-which is backed by the support of other surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists and more, each playing a reliable, critical link in the chain of breast care offered at his practice. Along with a team approach, Dr. Cahan believes open lines of communication and one-on-one bonding are crucial to a therapeutic relationship. Because of this, he sees every patient personally, an "old-fashioned" approach he wields as his greatest strength.Decreasing anxiety after a scary diagnosis is his main focus. His sensitivity to his patients' worries and fears makes him an indelible partner on their path to recovery, and he's always striving toward his goal of maintaining a patient's body image, her life and her overall health.
