Bulent Ecevit University Hospital multidisciplinary breast group was established in 2008. Our mission is to provide optimal breast care with the highest quality of experience. A highly dedicated team of surgeons, pathologists, radiologists, medical and radiation oncologists, and nuclear medicine specialists weekly meets to discuss cases. Treatment algorithm for each case is established in a comprehensive multidisciplinary manner according to board consensus statements. The patient centered care design aims to provide individualized management on case-by-case basis. The breast team works in the field of prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up. The Breast Unit provides care for all stages of breast cancer, including conservative and oncoplastic surgery (with intraoperative continuous ultrasound guidence), sentinel node procedure (with dual-agent), partial and whole breast irradiation, and neoadjuvant and adjuvant systemic therapy. Additionally, postgraduate education for residents and medical students with educational meetings is hosted.
