Breast Surgery takes care of the woman who has been diagnosed with breast cancer. We provide multidisciplinary care and the most advanced therapies. Physicians collaborate within the Multidisciplinary Group, including surgeons, medical oncologists, pathologists, radiologists, radiation oncologists, nuclear physicians, and plastic surgeons. A weekly meeting is organized. Our goal is to offer a tailored therapy for every woman at every stage of the disease. Breast conservative surgery has great importance. Intraoperative frozen section examination of sentinel node and intraoperative radiotherapy (IORT) is available. In the case of mastectomy, we offer skin-sparing mastectomy and nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate reconstruction.
