at the Center Restoring Women’s Appearance— and Confidence—After Breast Cancer For many women with breast cancer, having their breast reconstructed is an essential part of healing and feeling whole again. But too few women go into cancer surgery knowing what their reconstruction options are—and those who do are often overwhelmed by the many different procedures that are available. At The Weinberg Center, patients have access to the expertise of plastic surgeons in The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Center as soon as they are diagnosed. The plastic surgeon is integrated as part of the treatment team, ensuring that each woman understands the full range of reconstruction options so she can choose the procedure and timing that make the most sense for her. This approach, along with our plastic surgeons’ use of advanced technology and microsurgical techniques, leads to outstanding results for women in our care. By supporting The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Center, you can ensure our ability to continue raising the bar for breast reconstruction and remain a leader in this area.
