Clinical Director: Mario Taffurelli

The Breast Unit was established in 2004 as a consequence of a more-than-20-year-long multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. The multidisciplinary team, made up by oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and surgeons, meets twice a week for patient's evaluation and for the definition of diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. On average, 400 cases are evaluated and 300 are treated for breast carcinoma every year. The Breast Unit provides care of all stages of breast cancer, including conservative and demolitive surgery with reconstruction and oncoplastic surgery, partial and whole breast irradiation, pre-operative and adjuvant systemic therapy, treatment of locally advanced and metastatic breast cancer, psychological and rehabilitative support. The diagnostic phase takes about a week and the waiting time from diagnosis to treatment is about 2-3 weeks. A case-manager nurse is dedicated to the planning of the multidisciplinary team meetings and provides the organization of the different steps of pre-operative and post-surgical phases.
