The Breast Unit was established in 2008. Its aim is the prevention, diagnosis and cure of patients with breast diseases, by offering contemporary medical care. It is supported by all the relevant involved specialists of our hospital, as a team, and it operates according to the international standards of Breast Units. The main orientation of our Unit is the development of preventive screening (screening test). Therefore, we create especially preventive screening programs in different groups of women. Thanks to coordinated actions and to the donation by the 'Stavros Niarchos' Foundation, the hospital administration secured the supply of the most modern system of non-invasive stereotactic biopsy impalpable breast lesions (BLES). We are engaged in the surgical doctrine of minor surgical resection with maximum oncological outcome, implemented through the principles of oncoplastic Surgery. The breast unit continuously takes part in Greek and international scientific meetings related to breast disease, presenting its work and has been engaging in leading Greek and international relevant protocols.
