Breast Care Centre

Nawaloka hospital pioneered breast care in Sri Lanka over ten years ago. Today we are proud to launch the next stage, holistic breast care backed by the latest in technology at the Nawaloka Breast Care Center. The Nawaloka Breast Care Center features an entire team, from surgeons to counselors to specially trained nursing staff, to support, guide and treat any woman. Our staff knows that whilst breast cancer is predominant in the mind of most females over forty years of age there are other conditions that could inconvenience women, if not threaten their quality of life. That’s why at the Nawaloka Breast Care Center we are equipped with the latest technology that helps us diagnose faster and more accurately than ever before. We at Nawaloka are proud to offer all women the next stage of care at the Nawaloka Breast Care Centre.
