State of the Art

Diagnostics

At the Bone & Breast Care Centre we appreciate that suspecting you may have cancer is very worrying. And as such we make an effort to screen you as soon as possible to start the diagnostic journey.

 
Our Centre

The Bone & Breast Care Centre was established by Dr Louella Ritz in 1997. We offer up to date, innovative, state-of-the-art screening services. We pride ourselves in caring for and treating each patient professionally. Most of our all-female staff have been with the centre for more than a decade and so we all share the same passion for providing patients with top quality healthcare. We are also a steering member of the Morningside Breast Care working group and as such ensure a multi-disciplinary, informed approach for each patient's treatment protocol. 

Dr Louella Ritz

Dr Ritz is the Director and Specialist Breast Radiologist at The Bone & Breast Care Centre since its inception in 1997. She offers a holistic multimodal approach to all breast problems and osteoporosis screening. Dr Ritz stays updated with new and current trends by frequently attending annual local and international congresses.
