PRMA is Offering FREE Breast Reconstruction Follow-Up Care for Hurricane Harvey Victims
By: Courtney Floyd
We are honored to offer free breast reconstruction surgery follow up care for patients who have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey. We are truly heartbroken for our Texas neighbors who have been impacted by this terrible storm and want to help in every way we can.
“Our goal is to stand along-side our fellow breast surgeons in the affected communities,” shares PRMA co-founder Dr. Peter Ledoux. “There are likely many women needing follow up care following recent breast cancer reconstruction who are unable to get to their local providers due to the catastrophic storm damage.”
We are prepared to provide all aspects of post-operative and follow up care needed after breast reconstruction surgery at no cost to the patient. These services include suture removal, surgical drain removal, possible complication consultations, and general post-operative follow up care until patients are able to resume care with their local physician.
“We hope that by offering these services, we can ease the burden for breast cancer patients and their families,” says PRMA surgeon Dr. Chet Nastala.
If you are a patient in need following breast surgery and are unable to schedule with your local provider due to storm damage, please call 877-544-PRMA to schedule an appointment.
