Additionally, our surgeons are trained to operate on multiple parts of the body and for various conditions including but not limited to:

There are medical reasons for needing breast surgery, such as breast cancer, non-cancerous breast lumps and breast reduction surgery to help get rid of back pain. Our experienced surgeons are trained in performing a variety of surgeries including mastectomies (removal of one or both breasts) and lumpectomies (removal of part of breast tissue).
