PRMA Now Offering Lymphedema Surgery and Breast Reconstruction Options to Corpus Christi, Texas
By: Courtney Floyd
Dr. Ramon Garza III will be opening clinic doors beginning November 2, 2018.
“We believe expanding our reach to the Corpus area will provide better care to breast cancer patients in South Texas. Too often we see patients who do not have local access to breast reconstruction,” says Dr. Garza.
The new breast reconstruction and lymphedema surgery clinic with be located at 7121 South Padre Island Dr. #200 Corpus Christi, TX 78412.
“Individuals impacted by breast cancer and lymphedema have the right to be fully informed of all their reconstruction options as well as options to relieve the side effects of lymphedema,” says Garza. “As a board-certified plastic surgeon raised in Corpus, it is my honor to serve this community.”
PRMA offers patients today’s most advanced forms of lymphedema surgery and breast cancer reconstruction, including today’s ‘gold standard’ for reconstruction—the DIEP flap. The DIEP flap uses the patient’s own abdominal skin and fat to reconstruct the breast(s) after mastectomy. Likewise, advanced surgical options—such as Vascularized Lymph Node Transfer surgery—are offered to patients who have been unable to find relief from lymphedema swelling through traditional therapies.
Patients interested in scheduling their consultation can call 800.692.5565.
