About us

The Breast Care Unit deals with the surgery of benign and malign breast diseases, by applying Radio-guided Occult Lesion Localization (ROLL) for non-palpable breast lesions and for the sentinel lymph node localization. The surgical activities include demolitive oncological surgery (conservative and radical), surgery for malformation, benign and/or inflammatory, male breast pathologies, such as gynaecomastia e neoplasias. Thanks to the collaboration with the Plastic Surgery department of the Oncological Centre Istituto Tumori di Milano, this Breast Care Unit deals with the post-mastectomy breast reconstruction surgery, breast remodelling and contralateral symmetry after conservative surgery. All these practices are carried out for ordinary inpatients, outpatients and those people making use of the Day Hospital service. In addition to that, aesthetic plastic surgery (additive and reductive mastoplasty and mastopexy) is carried out by free professional surgeons.
The diagnostic and therapeutical approach follows an only and definitive organizational itinerary by the multidisciplinary Gruppo Senologico composed by the oncologist, the specific radiologist, the surgeon, the nuclear doctor, the plastic surgeon, the physiatrist and physiotherapist, the anatomical-pathologist, the psycho-oncologist, the geneticist, the radiotherapist, the palliative care doctor and the GP. Therefore, the decisions about the treatment and the ways to carry it out are discussed and shared in weekly meetings, thus it guarantees patients the best treatment. The Unit is also scientifically active and up-to-date, with publication on journals, taking part in congresses and working together with centres leader in Breast Care. The introduction and the testing in the clinical practice of new ways of treatment, and the constant scientific up-dating activity guarantee appropriate diagnostic and therapeutical activities. Moreover, it has been created a work group which deals with the placement of central venous catheter, applied through peripheral eco-guided techniques, in the outpatient’s department.
