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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

I am writing to you, on behalf of my wife Helen and myself, to thank all the staff of GMS clinic for the help and support you gave us during our stay in Moscow.
Since, I am ashamed that admit that I speak no Russian, I hope that you will be willing to translate this for the members of the GMS staff who do not speak English.
My own doctor seems pleased with the progress I am making. I still have a dressing on one of the wounds where the stitches may have been removed prematurely before I left the clinic but the others are fine and healing well.
Being ill and requiring surgery in another country will always be something of an ordeal, but the calm reassuring atmosphere in the GMS clinic did much to make us feel better about the experience. The administrative staff at reception was kind as well as efficient and their efforts on our behalf are something that we will never forget. We would also like to thank the cooks for the excellent food they prepared. We regret that we did not get the opportunity to meet them but we greatly appreciated their efforts and, after almost a week without normal food, I particularly enjoyed being able to choose from their extensive menu. Please forgive me for not always doing justice to the meals served but it has taken some time for my appetite to return to normal. We would also like to thank the room attendants for serving our meals so well and keeping our room so clean and tidy. Just as important for us, when so far from home, was that they always did so with a gracious smile. We looked forward to their visits and would like to thank them for being so remarkably patient when we tried to talk to them. We would also like to thank the several kind nurses who cared for me so diligently. I do not believe that I could not have enjoyed more attentive nursing anywhere else in the world and will never forget you. The several doctors who attended me at various stages also need to be thanked. I am grateful to them all but hope that they will forgive me for singling out Dr Constantin Dimitri for a particular mention. His patience, as he explained to me so well in English both what was happening to my body following the operation, and what he and the rest of the medical team were doing - and why – was particularly appreciated and helpful to me during my recovery.
Many, many thanks to you all.

Greetings from South Africa,
This is a follow up to our recent stay at GMS where my wife Merle Step had a complete Hip replacement by you recently.
She stood up to the return trip to South Africa very well and is able move around with the aid of a walker without difficulty. I took her to our local General Practitioner on Friday, with all your reports and X-Ray plates. He commented that he was very happy with the excellent procedures that you carried out and felt that she was in excellent professional hands while at GMS. He has referred her to an orthopedic surgeon for a final checkup and stitch removal. Also she is to go to Physo for further manipulation.
From both of us we cannot express our gratitude enough for the professional service, helpful administrative as well as nursing staff that attended to our needs while at GMS. We will always look back and always remember the Russian people for their friendly assistance to two complete strangers from another part of the world. In turn Russia will always be in our hearts and we will be good Ambassadors for your great country and federation.
Please pass on our greetings and thanks to a few that I remember by names, if I have left anyone out I apologies.
