- 313 New breast cancer cases treated per year
- 23 Breast multidisciplinarity team members
Clinical Director: Gilles Berclaz, MD
The Breast Centre Bern, part of the Lindenhof group, is one of the biggest in Switzerland, with around 350 breast cancer operations per year. Under the direction of PD Dr. med Gilles Berclaz, a team of experienced specialists has come together to offer patients with breast disease personal and competent care in one location, right through diagnosis and therapy to continuing aftercare. The Radiology team uses the most modern equipment for diagnostic imaging, such as tomosynthesis (DBT) or MRI, with functionality for the removal of tissue for further examination. During the weekly interdisciplinary tumour conference, the treatment programme recommended for each patient is drawn up in consultation with the team of participating specialists at the Breast Centre Bern. Medical oncology therapies, both before or after the operation, are managed under the supervision of experienced oncologists at the hospital. Nursing and physiotherapy provision at the centre is based on the latest criteria. Each patient can receive support from the breast care nurse, and, also, a female onco-psychologist is available.
