This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The July 9 hospital in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo has opened one of the country's top mastology centres. The so-called Centre of Excellence for the Care of Breast Pathologies aims to specialise in performing radiofrequency ablation of small tumours and minimally-invasive "mammotomy", whereby the tumour is removed under local anaesthetic with a single needle. Last month, the hospital opened a state-of-the-art surgery centre with 14 operating theatres, pathology laboratories, and radiology, haemotherapy, anaesthesiology and "clinical engineering" units. The hospital attends some 120,000 patients a year, performing 1,200 operations a year and 1,800 diagnostic examinations per month.
