About Our Surgeons
One of the most important choices you will make when facing breast reconstruction is who will perform your procedure. While many plastic surgeons have been trained in some techniques for breast reconstruction, few have the specialized training and experience necessary to perform highly specialized “free flap” procedures, which attach donor tissue to a new blood supply at the breast site, require specific training in microsurgery.
Our board certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Jon Ver Halen and Dr. Bob Basu have performed more than 2000 successful DIEP Flap procedures, and are well-versed in a full range of aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery, microsurgery, and oncoplastic surgery. They are able to successfully treat even more difficult cases, including patients who have undergone multiple surgeries as well as those who are facing further cancer treatments.
Through Breast Reconstruction Specialists, Dr. Ver Halen and Dr. Basu are able to serve patients throughout the southern U.S. from four different locations, expanding access to DIEP Flap and other specialized free flap breast reconstruction procedures.
