| The Breast
The Breast Centre brings together a multidisciplinary team to provide
a diagnostic, treatment and support service for women (and men)
with breast disease. Working in conjunction with the Burnside Hospital
and Dr Jones and Partners radiology service, Drs Clive Hoffmann and Stephen
Birrell provide a comprehensive inpatient
and outpatient breast care service. Complementing the team is Dr Michele Brooke Davey Breast Clinician, Dr Julie Connor Psychiatrist and Jane Marsh Breast Care Nurse.
The Breast Centre itself
is specifically designed to ensure that all necessary diagnostic
procedures can be performed
one convenient, comfortable and private location by the specialist
breast surgeons, radiologists and pathologists. Most patients
will have results of their assessments and a treatment
plan before they
leave the Centre.
