The best and the brightest, on your side
The physicians who perform breast surgery at HackensackUMC Mountainside are experts. For women who are candidates for breast reconstruction, the breast surgeons work closely with specialists in plastic surgery. All women who have breast surgery are visited by a nurse educator in the hospital prior to discharge. In addition to education about self-care in the immediate post operative period, patients are offered the opportunity to be linked to the local American Cancer Society’s Reach to Recovery program. Trained volunteers who match the approximate age and type of surgery reach out to individuals after discharge for continued support.
