The specialist Breast Surgery clinic was formed in the department of surgery in February 2007. We conduct medical treatment, education and research focusing on breast cancer. As multimodality therapy has progressed, the salvage rate of the breast and axilla has been enhanced and prognosis has significantly improved. On the other hand, individualization or determining medical care depending on each feature of tumors or clinical conditions has also progressed. This has made it possible to offer strong anti-tumor effects by specifically targeted treatments as well as the avoidance of over-treatment. In our department, we set up a system for cooperation with other clinical departments in order to respond to different conditions while practicing multimodalization, individualization and advanced and less-invasive treatments. Based on such principles, we are working on the development of local and systemic therapy advancements, as well as the establishment of new medical algorithms.
