Breast surgery

Breast surgery involves a wide range of operative methods and techniques for the treatment of pathological changes in the breast. Surgery is usually necessary for the removal of various growths that are detected in the tissues and structures of the mammary glands. At GMS Hospital our highly-trained specialists perform all kinds of single-stage breast operations, organ- preserving as well as radical, for the removal of tumors as well as for breast reconstruction.

About the department

Breast surgery is an entire field of medicine. The mammary glands are extremely sensitive organs that instantly respond to changes in the human body. Breast diseases can affect both men and women, and the doctors at GMS Hospital have the advanced medical training and practical experience to successfully treat these diseases through surgery.

Breast surgery

We have a multidisciplinary team of doctors that treat breast disorders, including mammologist- oncologists, radiologists, histologists and plastic surgeons. This approach ensures that each treatment plan is tailored to the individual needs of the individual patient. Our surgeons perform practically all types of breast surgery, most of which are done using gentle microsurgical technologies in order to preserve the organ tissues and avoid patient health risks.

Surgical plans are created for each patient individually, based on the results of the examination, overall health, and other factors. The operative treatment of certain pathological conditions involves fragmentary or full excision of the breast. GMS doctors perform all types of oncoplastic and reconstructive (single- or multiple- stage) operations, with exceptional aesthetic results.

Why an operation is necessary

The treatment of many breast ailments depends on surgical intervention. The operation may be organ- preserving, that is, with the removal of only pathological tissues (sectoral resection, quadrantectomy, lumpectomy) or radical, where the entire organ is removed. The main challenge for the surgical team is controlling the scale and scope of the surgery, reducing physical and emotional trauma, and ensuring the best chance for a full recovery.

Benefits of breast surgery at GMS Hospital

When possible, the breast surgery specialists at GMS prefer to use organ-preserving methods, without the need to remove the entire organ. When radical surgery is required, doctors make every effort to reduce the physical scope of the surgery and ensure the best clinical outcome as gently as possible.
