Expertise for TRAM surgery?


Question from Darlbel: How do you find someone with the expertise to do the TRAM surgery? How do you know which doctor that can do it and has done it?
Answers - Carolyn Chang I think, in general, when choosing any doctor, the same principles can be used. You want to see before and after photographs, and you want to be sure the doctor is board certified or at least board eligible. You want to see that they've been trained properly as a plastic surgeon and not in a different specialty. It's always helpful to talk to former patients, as well. Also, the recommendation of your general surgeon can be extremely helpful.
