Breast Cancer Treatment and Reconstruction Center
What is the Breast Cancer Treatment and Reconstruction Center?
We opened the Center in April 2008 to support every specialist involved in breast cancer treatment to collaborate closely to provide good medical care smoothly to patients. Breast cancer treatment has been provided mainly by general surgeons. However, the progress of surgery and medication therapy in recent years has enabled the provision of a higher level of treatment to patients by separating specialties in each field. Particularly in surgery, in addition to conventional radical mastectomy and breast-conserving surgery, breast reconstruction has been performed to enhance the cosmetic results of breasts after surgery, which demands cooperation not only with breast surgeons, but also with plastic surgeons. However, because of the progress of medication therapy, even if breast cancer recurs by some chance, it can be treated stably for a long period of time. To that end, specialists are necessary to support, in various ways, patients receiving long-term treatment.
