Second blog in 11 months. No blogging awards coming my way.
As October approaches, the office and I are in full recognition of breast cancer awareness month. About 40% of my patients are with me for breast cancer reconstruction. Offing all techniques--implants, flaps, and combinations--has allowed me to tailor the operation to the patient for the most natural/most desirable reconstruction. This is a very special patient population that I have the pleasure of treating. I walk through a challenging life experience with the patients, and during that time we both learn much about each other. The work has been artistic, challenging and rewarding. The patients have been inspiring.
I am now doing breast cancer reconstruction at South Jersey Regional Medical Center, Kennedy, and Underwood Hospitals.
I want to let my breast cancer patients know that they are special to me, and I hope to give some silver lining to their breast cancer cloud.
