Breast Surgery / Senology

Breast surgery is used for the surgical treatment of benign diseases and breast cancer. Depending on each case a more or less conservative surgery is used.

It is very important a preventive study for the earliest possible diagnosis of any injury. Our high resolution clinic is aimed at this purpose.

In women where a single small tumor tissue that contains cancer is found, it is removed together with some surrounding tissue in order to perform a conservative surgery or quadrantectomy. This surgery is complemented by the study of the sentinel lymph node or radiotherapy.

On the other hand, mastectomy is a more aggressive surgery where the entire breast is removed. This surgery is applicable when the tumor is large or in women who want to avoid follow-up and radiotherapy sessions. It is recommended that we always associate this surgery to a technique of reconstruction using prosthesis or the patient’s own tissue.

Among the most common techniques are:

  • Breast augmentation
  • Breast reduction
  • Quadrantectomy
  • Sentinel node biopsy
  • Tumorectomy and mastectomy
  • Breast reconstruction after or at the same time we are performing a mastectomy
