NY Times Article "After Mastectomies"

Nytimes article "After Mastectomies"A few days ago on January 29, 2017, New York Times posted an article by Roni Caryn Rabin titled After Mastectomies, an Unexpected Blow: Numb New Breasts. The article presents a few patients’ stories about having mastectomies and the subsequent loss of sensations in their breasts. As the article states, “While doctors agree on the need for a mastectomy procedure that spares nerves, they note that the goal of the surgery is to make sure the cancer is gone.”

As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I believe it is important to share these types of articles so patients can be better informed as they look toward breast reconstructive options.
