Located at Attunga House, Burnside Hospital (Adelaide, South Australia), the Wellend Clinic is a state-of-the-art breast health specialist clinic, focused on individualised breast cancer risk assessment, management and prevention in high risk women.
The Wellend Clinic’s diagnostic and therapeutic treatment program specialises in the management of women at high risk of breast cancer and those with high breast density. High breast density is a leading independent risk factor for getting breast cancer and primary cause of missed cancers during routine screening.
