About the department keyboard_arrow_down

Today, breast cancer is one of the most frequently diagnosed diseases. Menopause, which usually starts after the age of 50, increases the risk for a woman to learn about this diagnosis. Early diagnosis of breast cancer is the key to effective treatment and return to normal life.

If your diagnosis is "breast cancer", the mission of our center is to provide you with the competent and interdisciplinary care. This is achieved by the active cooperation of doctors working at Klinik Stephanshorn and ZeTuP Center. Thus, breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and postoperative observation are closely linked. Outpatient diagnosis before the surgery is carried out at ZeTuP Center or Gynecology Department. The surgeries are performed by your network doctor at Hirslanden Klinik Stephanshorn jointly with other professionals (e.g., an aesthetic surgeon). Postoperative observation and treatment are offered on the outpatient basis at ZeTuP Center or, if you prefer, at your doctor’s place.
