Breast Cancer Center
According to a study, there were about 67,000 cases of breast cancer last year. At the same time, breast cancer is thus by far the most common cancer in women. But new cases do not only affect women: about 1 percent of all new cases affect men. About one in eight women will suffer from breast cancer during their lifetime.
The Breast Cancer Center at the Wiener Privatklinik
The Vienna International Center for Breast Oncology at Wiener Privatklinik, one of the largest private clinics in Austria, offers comprehensive breast health services and brings together under one roof all the necessary medical disciplines from oncology, surgery and radiology to radio-oncology, pathology and genetic counseling.
That interdisciplinarity is unique and provides for the diverse diagnostic and treatment options offered to patients at Wiener Privatklinik.
All aspects of modern diagnosis, treatment and follow-up care are therefore fully covered at Wiener Privatklinik. Our goal, mission and vision is to individualize cancer therapies.
This enables the specialists at Wiener Privatklinik to intervene with the right solution at the right time. The individual treatment plan is determined by an interdisciplinary panel of experts.
In this process, the primary case manager, who is usually a specialist in the field of medical or surgical oncology, is responsible for the patient's healing path.
Prior to this, he or she ensures that the best clinical solution has been identified in collaboration with the other members of the multidisciplinary team.
For example, Florian Fitzal, M.D., professor of surgery, gives insight into the approach and goal of treatment at the Wiener Privatklinik, saying that the goal in breast cancer surgery is to achieve the best possible oncologic outcome with an optimal cosmetic result at the first surgical attempt.
Emanuel Sporn, M.D. associate professor of surgery, adds that the team at Wiener Privatklinik successfully fights breast cancer thanks to the mix of modern surgery and a tailored multimodal approach. "
