Mammazentrum Hamburg (Breastcancer Center Hamburg) at the Jerusalem Hospital is specialized exclusively in treatment and research of female and male breastcancer. Founded in 1996 the BCH is run by a team of multidisciplinary specialists, providing comprehensive care, including the most advanced treatment approaches and scientific studies. The Mammazentrum Hamburg has now become Germany´s leading Institution in diagnosis (over 50 000 mammographies rendered annually) and treatment (over 1000 surgical cases of breast cancer per year).

We offer medical and surgical consultations (including plastic and reconstructive surgery, genetic profiling e.t.c.) and specialist consultation for mammography, magnetic resonance imaging of the breast (MRI), breast ultrasonography and minimally invasive biopsies.

Meetings are held weekly by physicians from different disciplines who jointly develop therapy concepts for individual breastcancer cases at our institution. In these tumor conferences, the specialists involved talk to each other to make their therapy decisions not alone, but in consultation with experienced colleagues. Gynecologists, medical oncologists, plastic surgeons, pathologists, human geneticists, radiologists and radiation therapists discuss the therapeutic recommendations at the Mammazentrum Hamburg in order to determine which procedure is the most suitable medically and personally for a patient. The main focus of the tumor conference is the combination of the best available competence to evaluate the scientifically proven treatment options for breast cancer diseases. Specialists then exchange ideas, develop individual treatment strategies and check whether patients can be offered to participate in the clinical trial of new drugs. The tumor board is also used for the continuing education and training of participating physicians. For this reason, the Medical Association of Hamburg has recognized the tumor conference of the Mammazentrum Hamburg as a regular training event with the provision of CME points.

Around our surgical unit we arrange psycho-oncological and genetic counselling, chemotherapy and an unit of integrative oncology (TCM). Our Doctors, breascare-nurses and physiotherapists at the hospital are committed entirely to supporting breast cancer patients physically and emontionally.

The outpatient unit and the Jerusalem Hospital are located in the heart of Hamburg, close to the Alster and the main railway station and it takes only 25 min by Taxi from the Airport. The hospital also can be reached easily from the Hamburg international airport or the railway station by buses or rapid transit (metro) systems. Directly opposite the Hospital several hotels offer reasonable opportunity to stay for partners and relatives.
