Vivantes Breast Center
The certified center for breast diseases at Vivantes Klinikum Am Urban is one of the largest of its kind in Germany, and was rewarded by the Bundesverband Frauenselbsthilfe nach Krebs (Federal Self-Help Association for Women after Cancer) in 2012 for outstanding services in the care of breast cancer patients. We offer qualitatively high-value treatment here, based on current guidelines, and use our experience, skills and awareness to help our patients and their loved ones.
Our team consists of specially qualified gynaecologists, carers specially trained in dealing with breast diseases, psycho-oncologists, a study nurse, radiologists, pathologists, oncologists, radiotherapists, physiotherapists and an art therapist. We place particular importance on the tight collaboration with resident colleagues, self-help groups and other collaborative partners.
Our patients are given detailed explanations and extensive information about all the steps of their treatment, so that they can actively participate in their own recovery process. Our guiding principle is human, professional and holistic care.
As well as oncoplastic and reconstructive breast surgery, the Breast Center at Vivantes Klinikum Am Urban also offers a wide range of cosmetic (aesthetic) operations.
Certified Breast Center - Our Patients are the Priority
Clinics can be certified in a prolonged process by OnkoZert, on behalf of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Senologie, or DGS (German Senology Association), and the Deutsche Krebsgesellschaft, or DKG (German Cancer Association). Regular inspections are carried out to ensure that requirements and guidelines have been implemented in everyday clinical activities. The Center for Breast Diseases was certified in 2008 as a single breast centre for all Vivantes clinics in Berlin. Close collaboration with all specialist disciplines involved enables a speedy and safe diagnosis. Patients are the focal point of our work - in a certified breast center, they can be sure of receiving optimal advice, treatment and support from the interdisciplinary teamwork of the various specialities. Moreover, it is the job of a certified breast center to consider our patients' family situations, their social environments and other life circumstances.
