Thank You!
Jesse Dirksen, M.D., a Sanford breast cancer surgeon and Heather Karu, M.D., a Sanford plastic surgeon, discuss oncoplastic surgery as part of breast reconstruction surgery. Oncoplastic surgery is when a breast surgeon performs the breast cancer surgery, such as a lumpectomy, and also rearranges tissue to achieve a more optimal cosmetic appearance. Patients who require a partial mastectomy or a full mastectomy will have both a breast surgeon and a plastic surgeon evaluate them in the clinic, the surgeons then confer with one another before surgery to decide what is the most desirable technique for that patient’s breast reconstruction surgery.
