DIEP Flap Reconstruction with Nerve Graphs

Session begins at 5:00 PM

Please RSVP for this program above


Session Description:   Dr Snehankita Kulkarni, a plastic surgeon with CMC Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery, will discuss breast reconstruction options that may restore sensation (feeling) to the breast after a mastectomy, that involves reconnecting the nerves that are cut during surgery.  This is a breakthrough surgical technique that can be performed during a free flap (autologous) breast reconstruction, which can be either immediate or delayed.  This technique is not possible for women who have implant surgery, unless it is being done as part of a secondary procedure to replace implants with the body's own natural tissue.
