ANSWERS AND ASSISTANCE

LEARN MORE ABOUT TRAVELING FOR SURGERY AT OUR BREAST RECONSTRUCTION CENTERS

The path that led you to seek the expertise of Dr. Joshua Levine and the Center for Breast Reconstruction may not have been easy.

But now that you’ve found us, we believe that getting here should be simple as possible.

Traveling for surgery can be an overwhelming thought, but it doesn’t have to be. Dr. Joshua L. Levine is a world-renowned surgeon that treat patients who travel to New York and New Jersey to seek their surgical expertise. Whether you are a local patient or a patient traveling internationally, it is easy to make arrangements to have your surgery performed by Dr. Levine. 

Local patients to the tri-state area will meet with Dr. Levine prior to scheduling surgery. Out-of-town patients (over 3 hours driving distance) will meet with Dr. Levine the day of or the day before their scheduled surgery.

If you are traveling in for just a consultation or if you are a “next day surgery” patient, our staff is dedicated to assisting our patients in making the travel process stress-free. Though we cannot schedule your flight or reserve your hotel room, we can certainly make recommendations on where to stay and the best times to fly in for your consultation or next day surgery.
