Dr. Christine Fisher, Plastic Surgeon
Getting back to feeling whole is a vital part of breast cancer recovery. Having to lose one or more breasts during the treatment phase is not just physically taxing, it can scar mentally forever. Dr. Fisher and her team work with patients to change that.
Dr. Christine Fisher is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in breast reconstruction techniques for breast cancer patients using perforator flaps, such as DIEP flaps, and in cosmetic surgery of the breast and body. For appropriate candidates who are experiencing lymphedema after breast cancer treatment, she also offers lymphatic surgery, including lymphovenous anastomosis and lymph node transfer.
“The patients themselves are very diverse cross section of backgrounds and experiences. All of them are undergoing an experience that I really enjoy seeing them recover from and I enjoy being a part of their feeling of wellness.”– Dr. Christine Fisher
