logo of Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre

The Marvelle Koffler Breast Centre at Mount Sinai Hospital is a premiere facility specializing in breast health and disease. The Centre opened its doors in 1995, thanks to the extraordinary leadership of Marvelle and Murray Koffler.

We ensure each patient is cared for in a comprehensive manner, from the physical to the psychosocial.

Our patients come for breast cancer screening as well as diagnosis of benign and malignant breast conditions. Services include screening mammography, as centre is an Ontario Breast Screening Program assessment site. It is also home to a team of experts in the diagnosis and treatment of breast conditions, including breast cancer.
Combining the services of a range of health care providers under one roof, patients are treated by professionals in the areas of:

  • surgery
  • medicine
  • radiological sciences
  • pathology
  • psychiatry
  • nursing
  • palliative medicine
  • nutrition
  • social work
  • genetic counselling

For individuals diagnosed with breast cancer, treatment is coordinated at the outset by the centre's multidisciplinary team. Specialized cancer care professionals involved with the centre meet weekly to review medical information on all newly diagnosed breast cancer patients and provide input on the best plan of care.

Known as the Multidisciplinary Cancer Conference, this group optimizes medical treatment by ensuring multiple physicians have input into each patient's care. The team reviews each case and makes recommendations on the course of treatments. These recommendations are communicated to each patient by their treating physician.
