Who we are

The 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 the all-female staff have been with the centre for more than a decade and we all share the same passion of providing patients with quality healthcare. We are also a member of Morningside Breast Care. This ensures a multi-disciplinary, informed approach for each patient's treatment protocol. 

 

We follow guidelines similar to The American College of Radiology and the American Cancer Society and recommend that:

  • Women begin annual screening mammograms at age 40.

  • A family member with Breast Cancer in their 40's or earlier, mandates starting screening 10 years earlier.

  • All menopausal women should have a baseline bone density examination.

  • Men over the age of 65 should also consider having their bones tested. While breast care is predominantly women focused, many of our patients are men too.

Our Network

After so many years in practice, we have built up a sound network of allied specialists and experts in the field of breast diseases. Should you be diagnosed with cancer, you will be immediately referred to one of our expert surgeons or oncologists. You will be able to ask questions and discuss your concerns in a friendly, informative and comfortable environment.The philosophy of care within the unit is to combine a cohesive professional team approach to treatment with a personalised service aimed at involving and supporting patients in decision-making.
