The breast center of Maria Middelares has been recognized as a breast clinic since 2007. Since our clinic treated a sufficient number of patients and therefore has a large experience, we proceeded in 2014 to the recognition of “coordinating breast clinic”. A 'coordinating breast clinic' has a range of patient care focused on the diagnosis, the multidisciplinary consultation, multidisciplinary treatment, rehabilitation and follow-up of patients with malignant diseases of the breast. Our coordinating breast clinic focuses on multidisciplinary consultation and the necessary experience of the doctors involved. The breast clinic provides a rehabilitation program that incorporates both the physical, psychological and social aspect. Nursing expertise and guidance with psychologists are other requirements for a coordinating chest clinic. A coordinating breast clinic can enter into a formalized partnership with several satellite breast clinics. On the homepage of our breast centre we sketch the broad outlines of detection, diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. We also give a brief presentation of our specialized and dynamic team that assists and guides our patients.
