Mammary Pathology

"The oncoplastic techniques are aimed at the complete removal of the breast tumour with negative margins and the breast remodelling in order to achieve the best possible aesthetic result".

DR. ISABEL RUBIO RODRÍGUEZ
DIRECTOR. MAMMARY PATHOLOGY AREA

The Clinic is the most advanced private hospital in Spain, with all its technological equipment housed in the same centre. For this reason, the Breast Pathology Area is able to perform the diagnosis and treatment plan in one week.

Surgery is a common treatment for breast cancer and, whenever possible, we aim to preserve the breast (75% of cases) and avoid dissection of the axillary nodes using the sentinel node biopsy technique (80% of cases). If possible, hidden scars or oncoplastic surgery are performed.

We perform risk reduction surgery through bilateral mastectomy with conservation of skin, areola and nipple and immediate breast reconstruction, indicated in healthy patients but with high risk of suffering from breast cancer (BRCA mutations, variegated family history of breast and/or ovarian tumours, risk breast lesions, etc.)

Patients are treated within a multidisciplinary programme that combines surgery, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, hormone therapy and new molecular targets. Among the most noteworthy are neoadjuvant chemotherapy (before surgery) which allows for more conservative surgery, accelerated partial irradiation with brachytherapy (which reduces the 6-week, 5-day radiotherapy sessions), intraoperative radiotherapy (at the time of surgery), treatments with personalized vaccines and genetic risk studies, among others.
