Agnelo Queiroz, Federal District governor, gives an interview about the campaign for breast reconstruction started this week.

Until next Friday (9), 55 women who had breast cancer and underwent mastectomy will be answered in a campaign for breast reconstruction performed in public hospitals in the Federal District. In all, 40 volunteer surgeons and members of the Brazilian Society of Plastic Surgery will perform the procedures.

During the opening ceremony of the task force, the governor of the Federal District, Agnelo Queiroz, said that until last year, about 300 women waited in line to make breast reconstruction. In 2011, 165 surgeries were performed - 63 in a single day also through joint effort. Thus, 120 women remain on hold.

"As we have a pent-up demand, the task force helps to decrease it," he explains. According to the governor, the goal is that by making the diagnosis, treatment, chemotherapy or radiotherapy, the patient can be sent directly to breast reconstruction as part of treatment.

According to the coordinator of Plastic Surgery, Department of Health, Marcelo Gea, this is the third campaign for breast reconstruction performed in the Federal District. The time in queue for many women, he said, amounted to four or five years. "From this joint effort, we have the expectation that the wait is very small and that, within a few months, the patient can reach the hospital reconstruction," he said.
