The BREAST UNIT is involved in the diagnosis and treatment of female diseases and in particular the breast cancer. Our diagnostic-therapeutic-rehabilitative approach to breast disease is an interdisciplinary one, and is coordinated by a multidisciplinary team made up of a breast surgeon, an oncologist, a radiologist, an anatomy pathology technologist, a radiotherapist, a nuclear medicine doctor, a plastic surgeon, a physiatrist, psychologists, nurses and volunteer associations. The procedures follow the national and international standards and guidelines, and the whole process is regulated by quality controls. Senology Department uses the techniques of oncoplastic surgery to minimize any cosmetic damage from operations such as the quadrantectomy, and offers reconstructive breast interventions after such operations as mastectomies. We also offer a Plastic Surgery Clinic at the Women's Centre which provides various options for breast reconstruction to operated women. Finally, psychological assistance is available both for patients and their families.
