Clinical Director: Caramanica Antonio, MD
The Bresat Unit was established in 1993. The unit offers a multidiscilinary approach to breast cancer diagnosis and treatment. We examine about 5000 patients yearly and about 180 of them are new breast cancer patients. The Unit performs about 180 breast cancer surgeries yearly applying mammorep excision for non-palpable tumours, sentinel lymph-node biopsy with isotope, conservative surgery with plastic reconstruction and primary or delayed prothesis implantation (cooperating with plastic surgeons). Once a month we have informative meetings. A case-manager nurse is dedicated to the planing of the multidisciplinary team meetings and provides the organization of the different steps of the pre-operative and post-surgical phases.
