The Department of Thyroid and Breast Surgery is equipped with modern breast diagnosis facilities, such as Doppler ultrasound machine and minimally invasive biopsy system. We have always applied the state-of-art concepts and progresses from international researches to the clinical fields and have established a combined treatment module for thyroid and breast malignancies, which is customized to the situation of local patients. The breast imaging diagnosis and interventional diagnosis procedures are done by our own team members, greatly improving diagnostic accuracy. For breast cancer, we insist that every patient should receive tailored, standardized, systemic and humanized treatment. Patients here will get all-in-one service including surgery, chemotherapy, endocrine therapy and molecular targeting therapy. With these efforts, encouraging improvements have been achieved. In the aspect of more challenging minimally invasive surgery, we have started standardized laparoscopic assisted thyroidectomy and breast reconstruction, being the earliest practitioners of this technique. So far, multiple goiter, thyroid adenoma and micro-carcinoma have been treated in this way and good results have been achieved.
