Love for Women!

Breast cancer is a disease that affects the symbol of femininity. Its treatment and surgical reconstruction are of paramount importance to preserve the integrity of the female nature. The treatment of cancer should preserve both the mental and physical well-being as a whole. You deserve the best!

Scientific training, specialization, experience, skill, and continuous education of the specialized medical team are necessary to provide you with the best possible care. The undeniable need to care for women who want to protect themselves and those who are already ill led us to establish the Breast Department at the “Clinic of Excellence Plasis.” Our doctors, with their years of experience and scientific training, work with utmost respect for the dignity of female nature. Dr. Krasonikolakis, a Breast Surgeon with over 20 years of experience and a pioneer in Oncoplastic Surgery, in collaboration with Dr. Tzamantaki, a Plastic Surgeon, performed the first complex and highly demanding procedure in Greece in 2015, combining “Bilateral Mastectomy with Axillary Lymph Node Dissection and immediate Breast Reconstruction in the same surgery.” Every woman deserves respect for her uniqueness, and at the same time, we aim to achieve the best possible result through cancer treatment. This way, everything becomes part of the past, and the patient holds a passport not only for Good Health but also for an Excellent Quality of Life.

Breast surgery and mastology have undergone rapid changes in the last 20 years. This is mainly due to the tremendous progress in diagnostic tools, such as digital mammography, modern breast ultrasound, and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the breast, which allow us to detect tumors at non-invasive stages, significantly improving the prognosis for our patients.

In recent years, the prevalence of oncoplastic surgery has allowed us to preserve the breast in more and more patients. Mastectomy has not been proven to offer any survival benefits. Oncoplastic surgery combines proper oncologic surgery with plastic techniques that achieve good aesthetic results, both immediate and long-term, even when the tumor is in challenging locations. The unfavorable position of the tumor is no longer an indication for mastectomy. On the contrary, if the surgeon is not familiar with these techniques, they are forced to resort to either mastectomy or achieve an unsatisfactory aesthetic outcome. This has a highly negative impact on the patient’s life and may require further reconstructive interventions.

The prevalence of the sentinel lymph node technique has reduced the number of patients undergoing axillary lymph node dissection by approximately 65%. With this technique, we essentially identify the first lymph node to which cancer cells would migrate. If that node is negative, we can avoid a major surgical intervention.

Our clinic operates based on global guidelines for the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. We continuously monitor international research developments and collaborate with distinguished radiologists, pathologists, radiation oncologists, oncologists, and plastic surgeons. We also work with a specialized psychologist when deemed necessary.

Early Diagnosis of Breast Cancer

Clinical examination and laboratory testing are crucial for the early diagnosis of breast cancer. It is a known fact that one in eight women will develop breast cancer at some point in her life. Early detection significantly increases the chances of successful treatment and recovery. Regular breast self-examination, clinical breast examination, mammography, and other imaging techniques are essential in detecting breast abnormalities at an early stage. At our clinic, we emphasise the importance of comprehensive care, including diagnosis, treatment, and psychological support, to provide the best possible outcome for each patient.
