We sought out top breast surgery teams so women will know what breast reconstruction is like in the best hands. We’re here in San Antonio to watch the PRMA plastic surgery group at work, in their operating home at Methodist Hospital. They perform more than 600 flap procedures a year.
St. Charles Surgical Hospital and the adjacent Center for Restorative Breast Surgery is the world’s only dedicated private hospital that performs breast cancer surgery and reconstruction. We got rare access to follow a 35-year-old woman and BRCA1 carrier through her preventative bilateral mastectomy with tissue reconstruction. Both her mother and sister had their mastectomies here too. Our upcoming book will tell her story, as well as provide a behind-the-scenes look at the latest breast reconstruction with tissue procedures.
