TREATMENT Our commitment is to provide quality and safe health care with the support of professionals with technical and human excellence.
Under the close guidance of Oncologists in cases where pharmacological treatment is necessary, access to the most innovative medication is guaranteed. Personalized medical treatment is assured based on Chemotherapy, Endocrine Therapy, Immunotherapy and Targeted Therapy. This will depend on the type of tumour and its characteristics as well as the informed wishes of the patient.
Surgical Treatment As far as surgery is concerned, the most modern minimally invasive techniques are used, including research and excision of the sentinel node. It may also involve Oncoplastic Surgery (in some cases with the support of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery). In specific cases, Intraoperative Radiotherapy may be used (a recent technique that consists of performing immediate single dose radiation during the surgical intervention and immediately after the tumour is removed, thus avoiding External Radiotherapy that lasts for the following weeks).
