The IAF Breast Center is composed of a group of highly qualified professionals in their respective areas, providing a multidisciplinary approach, which integrates all essential medical specialties for optimal evaluation and treatment of complex clinical cases.

The Alexander Fleming Institute (IAF) is the first private institution in Latin America dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer patients.

 

The Mastology Units (or Breast Centers) are organizations with different specialists, dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of breast pathology, to coordinate and optimize the procedures in an integral way. It means an strong integration between the different specialties, which achieves a very significant synergy effect.

 

The Argentine Society of Mastology has recognized the value of Mastology Units for Argentina and has made great strides towards the popularization and application of the concept of Breast Centers. Since April 2016 we have been accredited as a Mastology Unit by the Argentine Society of Mastology. We have also been recognized as members of Breast Centers Network, the first international network of centers exclusively dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer. It is a project of ESO (European School of Oncology) with the aim of promoting and improving breast cancer care in Europe and around the world.
