Avance® Nerve Graft and Axoguard Nerve Connector® recipient, Resensation®
After a stage 2 breast cancer diagnosis, Jessica under went a bilateral mastectomy and months of chemotherapy. As a nurse, she recognized that the nerves providing sensation to her breasts would be removed as part of her double mastectomy. She feared that her reconstructed breasts would always feel disconnected and wondered how living with a numb chest would affect her quality of life. She was thrilled to learn about the Resensation surgical technique and asked that the procedure be included during her natural tissue reconstruction. Jessica is grateful to feel whole again now that sensation has returned to her chest.
