What is the best strategy against cancer? This question is asked particularly frequently in oncology. One answer is: Knowledge. Patients now come from all over the world to take advantage of new, effective drugs or the latest treatment strategies before they become the general standard.
We have also set global standards in the field of plastic and reconstructive breast surgery with the development and establishment of special forms of surgery e.g. in implant surgery, breast reduction etc.
