Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in American women, with 1 in 8 US women developing invasive breast cancer in her lifetime.
There are a wide variety of treatment options available to patients diagnosed with breast cancer, and the treatment plan involves physicians from multiple specialties, such as Primary Care Medicine, Oncology, Radiology, Radiation Oncology, Pathology, Breast Surgery, and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. We have developed an extensive breast reconstructive practice for women diagnosed with breast cancer.
Having a breast rebuilt after it is removed for breast cancer (mastectomy) is a personal decision. Studies reveal that psychologically, having a breast reconstructed after a mastectomy has tremendous positive benefits for the patient.
