Breast Reconstruction history was made in the OR

Exciting history was made in the OR on Thursday, August 7.  For the first time ever at CMH, a patient had a mastectomy for cancer, followed immediately by microsurgical  free flap breast reconstruction. The case involved Drs. Kolyn, Chesney, Ma, and Avram (from McMaster University) along with Shenker. Dr. Ling provided outstanding anesthetic care throughout the whole day.

 

This case marks the first time in our history that a breast cancer patient received the most state-of- the-art form of autologous  breast reconstruction at the same time as her mastectomy. She went to sleep with a breast, was cured of her cancer and woke up with ‎a new breast. It was a great team effort  and everything went perfectly! The team will collaborate to make these cases smoother and faster, with a goal of bringing the best breast cancer care to the women in our region.

 

Dr. Rob Shenker
