For over half a year the independent research institute Munich Inquire Media worked on the ranking list. Besides extensive interviews with doctors regarding their recommendations the institute studied the quality reports of clinics and contacted the individual centres for information on their service offers as well as diagnostics and therapy options. The breast centre at the Klinikum Landshut convinced above all by its over-average high reputation and hygiene standards. In addition thereto, the full scope of modern therapy options are offered at the breast centre which is able to revert to ultra-modern diagnostics including the PET/CT, the combination of Positron Emission Tomography and computer tomography with which even the minutest tumour cells can be identified.

Besides the excellent tumour treatment at the Breast Centre Dr. Bauerfeind also underlines the further treatment spectrum at his Gynaecological Clinic which enjoys an excellent reputation not only for treatment of all other malign and benign female disorders, but also as for its obstetrics division with its excellent medical care and intimate atmosphere.
