Our Team Approach

Multidisciplinary treatment is medical care provided by a team of specialists from different disciplines, relevant to the treatment of breast cancer. The unit includes a breast surgeon, a medical oncologist, a radiation oncologist and a plastic surgeon.

In recognition of this highly stressful time, our clinical psychologist also provides guidance on techniques and supportive therapies to help patients and their families cope with the diagnosis and treatment.

Genetic counselling can also be made available upon the suggestion of the team.
