Breast Operations

  • Open examination excisions in the case of suspected changes in the breast region
  • Surgical treatment of inflammatory diseases of the breast
  • Breast-conserving treatment for malignant changes and their early stages. In such cases, particular importance is attached to a cosmetically satisfying result. The clinic also works in close cooperation with the Plastic Surgery Department during such treatments in order to perform simultaneous reconstruction and equalisation with the other side in the case of size discrepancy
  • Ablation: removal of the mammary gland where there is malignant disease. Plastic surgery or simultaneous or subsequent reconstruction using the patient’s own tissue (latissimus dorsi plasty, TRAM flaps) or foreign material (expanders, insertion of a silicone implant) may be used
  • Sentinel node biopsy: in breast cancer: radio-labelling of the sentinel lymph node and targeted excision
  • Work is carried out in close cooperation with psychotherapists and psycho-oncologists
  • Our collaboration with the hospital’s Social Service enables us to offer individual assistance in cases involving specific domestic and social problems. Applications for convalescence treatments and rehabilitation treatments can also be made through our clinic.
