Experience and expertise - The MUSC Advanced Breast Reconstruction Program includes four of the top surgeons in this field. Our doctors were some of the first to use natural tissue reconstruction methods that require microsurgery, such as the revolutionary DIEP flap procedure, which was pioneered in Charleston, SC.
High volume – We perform as many as 400 breast reconstructions and revisions each year and are one of the few medical centers in the country to routinely use microsurgery to use a woman’s own natural tissue for breast reconstruction.
Patient-centered approach – We will help you make decisions and tailor your treatment based on your wishes and what works best for you. We offer all viable breast reconstruction options including those that involve natural tissue – DIEP, SIEA, GAP, TAP, TUG, LD, TRAM – as well as breast reconstruction with implants. We can perform reconstruction at the same time as your surgery or delay the procedure until you complete cancer treatments.
Multi-disciplinary team – The MUSC Advanced Breast Reconstruction Program has the advantage of collaborating with the breast care team at MUSC Hollings Cancer Center, which has been designated by the National Cancer Institute (NCI). As a result, patients at MUSC can benefit from the nation’s top plastic surgeons and top oncologists working together.
