The decision to have breast reconstruction is one of many challenges a woman faces when newly diagnosed with breast cancer. There are many viable options performed by talented plastic and general surgeons on Garden Park Medical Center’s medical staff. Our goal is to educate the community of breast cancer survivors, and their physicians, on an innovative and life-changing alternative offered at Garden Park, the Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator (DIEP) flap, also known as the Tummy Tuck flap.
In support of National Bra Day and Breast Reconstruction Awareness Month, we will host an education session for potential patients and physicians on Thursday, October 12, 2017, to highlight the intricacies of the procedure, provide patient testimonials, as well as host a vendor expo comprised of vendors that provide products supporting the surgery. We are welcoming physicians and their staff. We encourage them to extend the invitation to patients that they feel would benefit from hearing details about the procedure. Our guest speakers are General Surgeon, Paul Mace, MD, and Michael Diaz, MD, FACS, the first surgical team to perform the DIEP procedure in the state of Mississippi.
If a patient is newly diagnosed with breast cancer, have had previous breast cancer surgery without reconstruction, had a failed or unsatisfactory reconstruction with implants, or have BRCA mutation with a high risk for future breast cancer, she may be a candidate for DIEP flap reconstruction.
