In Clinic Helena we have created a rehabilitation program, especially for breast cancer patients.
With the aid of early detection and modern care, most of the patients of Clinic Helena recover totally from breast cancer.
In addition to breast cancer care, we offer individualised rehabilitation programs for our patients. Our aim is to both help our patients to recover from the cancer treatments and to re-establish their quality of life after the disease is gone.
The rehabilitation starts already during the diagnostics phase and continues until the patient has returned to normal life. The various phases of rehabilitation can be adjusted, with the goal of covering typical issues of that treatment phase. In the diagnostic stage, our psychologists help the patient to accept the feelings of having cancer. They will help the patient to find the strength to go through the treatments and also support the family members of the patient. After the surgery, our physical therapist will teach appropriate exercises to maintain muscle strength. The rehabilitation will help the patient to cope with the side effects of chemotherapy and radiation and to maintain the most active life possible.
