According to the experts, about 1 in 8 U.S. women (about 12%) will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime. Everyone knows somebody whose life has been impacted by this destructive disease.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Troy Pittman has made it part of his life’s mission to help breast cancer patients and survivors. As part of treatment for breast cancer, many women must undergo mastectomy surgery, a process that can leave a patient feeling unhappy and uncomfortable with their altered body. Doctor Pittman is an expert at performing complex breast reconstruction for these women in order to ease the emotional impact of this transition.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month. This month, we encourage you to reach out compassionately to those who have been afflicted with breast cancer. Educate yourself more about breast cancer, and consider making a charitable donation to help fund breast cancer research.
