      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Pilewskie says...

      I am a surgical breast oncologist with a practice dedicated exclusively to the treatment of breast diseases, and I perform all aspects of breast cancer surgery.  I see patients both at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Evelyn H. Lauder Breast Center in Manhattan as well as at our regional care facility in Commack, Long Island.  At both locations a multidisciplinary team approach is utilized to ensure delivery of the highest quality breast cancer care.
