After deliberating for four days, a New York jury yesterday awarded $2.25 million to a breast cancer survivor and national breast cancer advocate represented by a Philadelphia lawyer, agreeing that a doctor failed in informing the woman of the option of lumpectomy before performing a mastectomy.

John W. Baldante, a principal partner at Levy Angstreich Finney Baldante Rubenstein & Coren, won the case after a two-week trial in New York Supreme Court in Manhattan.
