Breast Clinic Sion

Based in Sion for the Valais romand region, the Breast Clinic at Valais Hospital provides rapid and comprehensive care for any conditions affecting this organ. It works in close collaboration with the Breast Cancer Screening Centre and brings together all the specialities which are relevant to this field, such as oncology (cancerology), radiology, pathology, nuclear medicine, plastic surgery and psychiatry.

Patients are cared for by a doctor and by specialist healthcare staff, in accordance with the guidelines laid down in the Charter for Breast Cancer Care issued by "Ligue suisse contre le cancer".
Bringing together all of these specialists within this Breast Clinic allows us to provide same-day diagnosis, as well as surgical or oncological treatment of any tumour within fifteen days of diagnosis.

In all cases, the doctor who has referred the patient is quickly informed of the diagnosis and of the treatment that is being considered. All cases are also discussed during a multidisciplinary meeting set up to define the following treatment steps. And while the Breast Clinic is equipped with all necessary skills, its specialists can call upon the assistance of their colleagues in the Centre hospitalier universitaire vaudois (CHUV) or in the Hôpitaux Universitaires de Genève (HUG) in case of any doubt regarding the patient’s treatment or the aggressiveness of a tumour.

In the Haut-Valais region, Valais Hospital also has a multidisciplinary network dedicated to providing care for breast pathologies.

Patients suffering from breast-related diseases are provided with optimal treatment and care at Visp Hospital. A specialist interdisciplinary team provides rapid diagnoses and high quality treatment. For more complex cases, treatment is provided within the Breast Clinic of the University Clinic.Psychological support for patients and for their next of kin is viewed as an integral part of their treatment.
