I am a breast cancer survivor. When Dr. Desai performed the reconstruction surgery I didn’t realize until afterwards how important this last part of a difficult path it was going to be for me. I hadn’t admitted even to myself that every time I saw myself it was a reminder of the C word.
I am extremely happy with the result. The actual surgical procedure was easy. I was only out of work a couple of days. I was careful with lifting a lot longer, but got right back to living my life quickly. I no longer feel self conscious.
Dr Desai is a compassionate person. His staff is kind. I can’t say thank you enough!!
