Our Breast Unit deals with surgical treatment of benign and malignant breast diseases. The activity includes surgical oncology demolition (radical and conservative), interventions for malformations to benign and/or inflammatory disease and male breast (gynecomastia and cancer). The collaboration with the Plastic Surgery Department of Santa Maria di Terni Hospital pays particular attention to post-mastectomy breast reconstructive surgery, breast surgery and to remodeling the contralateral symmetrization after conservative surgery. We also carry out cosmetic surgery (breast augmentation, mastopexy and reductive) under professional services. From an organizational perspective, the diagnostic and therapeutic approach is performed in a single defined path by the Multidisciplinary Group. Therapeutic choices and settings of care plans are discussed and shared in weekly meetings. Scientific activity is carried out regularly. We also have set up a working group that deals with the placement of central venous catheters with peripheral insertion echoguided. Its activities are performed in an outpatient department.
