Dr. Pisano has been named a San Antonio Healthcare Hero for 2014 by the San Antonio Better Business Journal!

Out of many nominations, Dr. Pisano is honored to be a 2014 winner for Outstanding Physician.

The winners were highlighted in the San Antonio Business Journal and were recognized at the awards reception this evening at the McNay Art Museum.

Here are some of the highlights from PRMA’s article in the journal:

What gets you out of bed in the morning?

Helping women who have had ablative breast surgery.

What is your biggest lesson learned?

To have a vision and to pursue it with dogged determination. People thought Dr. Ledoux and I were crazy when we came to San Antonio wanting to do tissue transplant reconstruction. We pursued our vision; we were persistent. Today, we perform 550-600 tissue transplant reconstructions per year.

Of what are you a proponent?

For passage of the bill circulating Congress that would mandate that patients be informed that breast reconstruction is an option.
