Dr. Murphy was interviewed by Wendy Damonte of Channel 2 News for the Health Section.
There are many options of breast reconstruction for breast cancer patients. Whether the patient has undergone, or is going surgery and/or treatments, there are different levels of reconstruction and options of when to do surgery, if so needed. It is a fact, that women who have undergone reconstructive breast surgery after a mastectomy feel better about themselves. We’d like to help you make the right decision for you. Breast cancer effects our Moms, daughters, sisters , aunts, cousins, and friends.
