Avance® Nerve Graft recipient, Resensation®
As a cancer researcher, Katy never missed a mammogram and encouraged others to be screened regularly. She had lost her mother to breast cancer so was vigilant about watching for any warning signs. So when a routine mammogram indicated the potential for breast cancer to develop, Katy elected to undergo a prophylactic mastectomy and breast reconstruction. She was uncertain what life after mastectomy would look like for her and began researching breast reconstruction options. She was excited to find a reconstruction option that offered the potential of returned sensation. Katy’s breasts were reconstructed using the Resensation® surgical technique. She is back at her job as a cancer researcher and is thankful for the return of sensation to her chest.
