Breast Cancer Medical Treatments


The Division is aimed to provide comprehensive care of all the types and phases (preoperative, adjuvant, advanced disease) of breast cancer with active clinical and translational research, integrating  outpatient and in-patient areas through a common support.

Our Activities

The Division of Medical Senology provides care and conducts research in an integrated fashion in the field of breast cancer.

The principle of providing the best personalized care for the individual patient with breast cancer, with full respect for quality of life and proper communication, is the best support for competitive and innovative clinical research. The principle shared by members of the Division is that increased participation in clinical trials would increase learning about the disease and improve patient care. Weekly multidisciplinary meetings for both the preoperative, adjuvant and advanced setting are planned in order to properly address a tailored clinical and investigational approach.
