The Breast Unit of Reggio Emilia Ospedale S. Maria Nuova was established in 2009 as a result of a more-than-20-year-long multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. We offer a coordinated approach provided by a team of experts in all fields involved in breast diseases including all steps from risk assessment to long term follow up.
The multidisciplinary team, constituted by oncologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and surgeons, meets every two week for patient's evaluation and for the definition of diagnostic and therapeutic strategies. The Breast Unit provides care for all stages BC: neo- and adjuvant chemotherapy, oncoplastic and conserving surgery, breast reconstruction, radio-guided surgery, treatment of locally advanced and metastatic BC, rehabilitative and psychological support. Our strategy is to tailor individualized treatment according to clinical stage and tumor biology.
