Breast Centre

To the contacts

For most people, the diagnosis of cancer has a huge impact on their lives. It is often associated with great anxiety and raises fundamental existential questions. The most important thing for us is to accompany you professionally and humanely in this stressful situation after your cancer diagnosis. We give you information, support and the necessary time to find your own way. We accompany you from the first diagnosis, through therapy, to aftercare.

At our Breast Centre you can get advice and support at every stage of the disease. A diagnosis of breast cancer or a benign change in the breast creates a situation in which we strive to meet you with empathy and provide guidance.

By analysing your situation followed by sound advice based on international guidelines, professional society recommendations, studies and publications, we can offer you the best possible treatment.

We regularly consult with other experts from our Oncology Centre in our multi-disciplinary tumour board when cancer is diagnosed. In the process, we present the cases to gynaecologists and consult with pathologists, radiologists, system oncologists, palliative care specialists, general surgeons and other experts as needed. All therapy recommendations developed here are discussed with you and centred on your wishes and needs. Only then does the joint decision regarding your individual therapy take place.

In most cases, surgery is needed. In our Breast Centre, operations are carried out as far as possible in a breast-preserving manner and taking aesthetic aspects into consideration. In some situations, the entire breast must be removed. In this case, surgical reconstruction with an implant or the patient's own tissue is usually possible. We are experts in all of these surgical techniques and they are available at our clinic.

Science-based medicine is at the forefront of our considerations. Within the framework of our integrative medical approach, complementary medical procedures are also used. Modern medicine is prevalent in systemic therapy, not only through the use of chemotherapy, but also through the use of hormone therapy, immunotherapy, antibody therapy, targeted therapy such as PARP inhibitors and tyrosine kinase inhibitors. We also offer radiotherapy in addition to this spectrum of treatment.

Moreover, we work according to the principle of integrative oncology. Our goal is to strengthen the individual's self-healing powers. Therefore, a comprehensive and individual treatment concept is worked out with each patient. This takes into account not only the body, but their entire personality. The standard medical concept is supplemented by naturopathic procedures with the use of medicines and anthroposophic therapies: music and art therapies, anthroposophic movement therapy (eurythmy therapy), rhythmic massage and physiotherapy, psycho-oncological support and nutritional counselling. Special nursing applications such as embrocations, wraps and compresses can be used as a supportive measure before and after operations.
