In august 2017 a symposium on oncoplastic surgery was held in Jokjakarta. After that symposium the question raised how to implement this in Indonesia and how we can improve the oncological practice in general and especially breast cancer care in general. Also is it possible to reduce the so-called medical tourism?
BORST was established with the collaboration of
IDGNHealth (Drs T Tan)
Rumah Sakit Kanker “Dharmais” in Jakarta (Prof Dr Samuel J Haryono)
Universitas Gadjah Mada in Jokjakarta (Prof Dr Teguh Aryandono)
PERBEPI (ID Society of breast surgeons)
Members of the board are
Dr A.N.van Geel, Dr Bayu Brahma, Dr Kristanto Yuli Tarsi, Dr Mikko Larsen

The main topics to start with are
Education of specialized breast surgeons, incl skills training
Creating multidisciplinary breast cancer teams
