Breast Surgery

The UOC of Breast Surgery represents excellence in the treatment of breast cancer and is an integral part of the Breast Unit

Our Breast Center gathers the skills of all the specialists involved in the work of diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of women affected by this pathology (breast surgeon, plastic surgeon, pathologist, radiologist, oncologist, radiotherapist, gynecologist, psychologist, medical geneticist, biologist, physiotherapist, case manager) and offers an integrated path capable of providing personalized therapies in accordance with constantly updated guidelines.

The strength is the complete taking charge of the patient. Quality, humanisation of care, innovation and research are the pillars on which our Breast Unit is based.

Our Senology Centre also has a Senological Surgery department with dedicated beds.
