The B.U. is located in the new 'Polichirurgico' of the hospital, 1st floor. We treat at least 240 cancer patients per year. The staff is composed by: 1 full-time breast surgeon (director), 2 senior full-time breast surgeons, 1 half-time newly-formed breast surgeon, 1 dedicated psychologist, 1 dedicated case-manager. Briefings are held every Monday, with multi-disciplinary discussion of all pre and post operativ cases and B3. The unit has an agreement with the 'Scuola di Oncologia Chirurgica Ricostruttiva' of Milan National Cancer Institute, with constant sharing of protocols, clinical cases and trials of clinical research. We are member of SenoNetwork and ANISC. All routine and more specialised diagnostic tools, with the main care options (surgery, reconstruction, oncology, radiotherapy, psychologic support and rehabilitation) are offered and fully covered by the national health institute. Genetic counseling is offered to the targeted population through an agreement with the National Cancer Institute. Our strength points are: friendly welcome, affectionate closeness and individual care-paths from early diagnosis to last follow-up.
