Clinical Director: Francisco Ripoll Orts, MD, PhD
The Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Unit (Unidad Funcional de Patología de Mama) at the University Hospital (now Hospital Universitari i Politecnic) La Fe was created in February 2002 as a result of a fusion process of the services and units involved in all fields of breast diseases especially breast cancer. The unit follows the recommendations of the European Society of Mastology (EUSOMA). The main goals of the Unit are: to maintain and develop high quality uniformed standards in the area of screening, diagnosis, and treatment of benign and malignant diseases of the breast and to develop tasks of teaching and research activities. At the moment the buildings of our hospital are moving to an other area in the south of Valencia. The postal address and phone may change in the near future.
