BreastCentre Zurich

Around one in ten women will develop breast cancer in the course of her life. Fortunately, most changes in the breast are benign. If the worst comes to the worst, you as a patient are in good hands with us.

We offer you interdisciplinary collaboration between various specialists, state-of-the-art equipment and technologies as well as treatment that is individually tailored to you. You can rely on our experience and expertise at all times. We offer you all-round care for all breast diseases 365 days a year.

The services of the Breast Centre


As a woman with breast disease, you are not alone. Over 6,000 other women in Switzerland receive a similar diagnosis every year. Each of them has a different course of the disease, a different therapy and finds her own personal way of dealing with it. We would like to present some of these stories here to show solidarity, encourage and support other women.
