The Breast Unit of Max Institute of Cancer Care, Patparganj is a well-staffed and equipped unit that caters to about 300 cases of breast cancer every year. There is a close collaboration between surgical, medical, and radiation oncologists along with excellent support from radiologists, pathologists, physiotherapists, psychologists, geneticist, fertility specialists, and nurse practitioners, to deliver the best to the patients who come under our care. All cases are discussed in our twice-weekly MDTs to arrive at a consensus on what is optimum for each patient. We have the best in technology in terms of Diagnostics, Surgery as well as Radiation Oncology. There is a 1-year fellowship program in Breast Surgery and a 3-year post-doctoral course in Medical Oncology, which allows for a robust academic program. Clinical research, six-monthly audits, thesis submissions, Lymphedema Certificate courses, and Workshops form an integral part of the unit. Monthly Breast Support Group programs to handhold patients through treatment and beyond is also a much-appreciated endeavor of the Unit. A Patient volunteer group carved out of the Support group is actively engaged with new patient needs.
