The quality of healthcare and the rendering of services which facilitate the treatment are compliant with the highest world standards.
Following the initial examination at the Breast Cancer Management Center, patients undergo a mammography test, an ultrasound examination and a biopsy, if needed. Doctors diagnose the patient, assess the extent of the disease and offer the most appropriate, fast and efficient treatment. Special attention is paid to women with high risk of breast cancer.
Each particular case at the Breast Cancer Management Centre will be examined and evaluated by a special council, consisting of specialists from the departments of general surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine, radiology, anaplastic surgery, and psychiatry. This multidisciplinary team will have its weekly sessions at the Tumor Board Meeting, where the most appropriate specific treatment plan would be determined and appointed. The merit of overcoming all problems in breast cancer goes to the whole team.
