The group clinic Pelzer Czermak in Heidelberg is specialised on plastic, aesthetic and hand surgery. In 2014, about 75,000 women were diagnosed with breast cancer in Germany. In about 20 to 30 percent, patients have to face the complete removal of the breast. On the plus side, surgeons are able to reconstruct breasts nowadays. Dr. Michael Pelzer M.D. and Dr. Christoph Czermak M.D. already look back at 30 years of experience in this field. They are specialised on reconstructive breast surgery using skin tissue or implants. “Re-establishing the female body image can contribute to improving both the posture and the self-esteem of the patient,” says Dr. Pelzer.
