State of the Art
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.
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.
