Surgery is my expertise
Surgery is a key element of breast cancer treatment. In the past, this almost inevitably resulted in the loss of an affected breast. However, over the last decades, surgical techniques have changed dramatically and today we can preserve the breast in more than 75% of cases. As part of my medical training in breast cancer centers worldwide, I have been able to accumulate a wealth of expertise in different surgical techniques
As one of the first breast surgeons in Austria, I have performed oncoplastic surgeries, and have continuously improved my techniques over the years. Oncoplastic surgery combines strategies of conventional cancer surgery with those of aesthetic-reconstructive surgery, in order to achieve both, oncological safety, and an excellent cosmetic outcome. If, however, because of tumor extent or localization, breast conserving surgery is not feasible, I also offer breast reconstruction.
