Anyone know of an excellent plastic surgeon outside of Utah who performs this procedure?

Thanks.

    In Texas
    In Texas the most well-know places are M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston (#1 cancer research center in TX), another place in San Antonio (can't remember the name), but My Surgeon is Dr. Michel St. Cyr at the University of Texas Southwest Medical Center in Dallas. He has done a great job and knew just what to do when I had some unusual complications.

    You may not want to come this far South, but that's what I know.

    be well, seof

    DIEP Procedure
    I don't know of a doctor in Utah but I had the procedure done in Milwaukee, WI. My doctors name was Dr. Thomas Kinney. I love my results. Good luck!!!!

    I have a great plastic
    I have a great plastic surgeon at the Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Palo Alto, California. Near Stanford University, in fact the surgerys are performed there. He performed my DIEP flap and now I am waiting from chemo and rads to finish before having the final. He has plenty of before and after photos, is very caring and dedicated. Don't know how far you are willing to travel though.

    surgeon
    Hi Miya,
    My surgeon is Dr. Schusterman in Houston, Texas. He has pioneered this surgery and my breast dr. won't use anyone else. My surgery is June 14th and will be done at Texas Women's Hospital in Houston. Dr. Schusterman has trained and worked at M.D.Anderson also.

    Good luck to you!
