Look The Best to Feel Your Best

Our Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery doctors and staff have tailored their program to address the specific needs of their patients. Our Breast Reconstruction and Restoration team of Dr. Bernie Chang and Dr. Brendan Collins has developed a Center of Excellence for breast cancer patients and patients who need corrective breast surgery to repair an unsuccessful previous experience. Mercy’s Breast Reconstruction and Restoration doctors are among the best breast reconstruction surgeons in the Mid-Atlantic region.

Breast Reconstruction and Restoration the Best Answer for Breast Cancer Patients

Natural beauty sometimes needs to be recaptured, especially for women who have had breast cancer.  Breast Reconstruction and Restoration at Mercy is designed specifically to address the physical changes that result from breast cancer surgery. The advantage women gain from the Breast Reconstruction and Restoration surgeons comes from their extraordinary skilled microsurgical technique to rebuild breast tissue from a woman’s stomach, buttocks or other area of her body.  When necessary or preferred by the patient, implants can be used to re-form the breast. 

Our expert breast reconstruction doctors work in close collaboration with the surgeons in The Hoffberger Breast Center to ensure women understand all their options – from breast cancer surgery through breast reconstruction – so they are able to make the best choice for their breast care.
