At PRMA our passion and sole focus is rebuilding lives after breast cancer. Our surgeons have over 100 years of combined microsurgical experience.

Our expertise is just one of the reasons PRMA is a world leader in breast reconstruction. Since opening our doors we’ve performed over 10,000 breast reconstruction procedures. We specialize in techniques that use the patient’s own tissue to create a natural, warm, soft breasts with feeling after breast cancer.

We promote shared decision-making, ensuring our patients preferences and goals are met. It’s your body and you should have a say in deciding which procedure is best for you. At PRMA we don’t just recreate your breasts, we strive to completely restore your sense of wholeness after breast cancer surgery.

We are constantly seeking to improve and push breast reconstruction forward. We are therefore very proud to offer our patients a sense of wholeness through TruSense℠. Many patients are unaware that the sensory nerves are often cut during a mastectomy causing permanent numbness. TruSense℠ not only recreates a natural-looking breast but also reconnects sensory nerves, so you can once again feel a touch or a hug.

Many women who undergo breast cancer surgery are also concerned about lymphedema. PRMA is one of the leading centers in the world performing innovative lymphedema surgery in conjunction with breast reconstruction. When undergoing advanced muscle preserving breast reconstruction like the DIEP flap, our patients benefit from the expertise of two microsurgeons, greatly reducing the anesthesia and surgery time. PRMA’s Enhanced Recovery After Surgery protocol also greatly reduces hospital stay and improves pain control and shortens overall recovery time.

We perform surgeries in an award-winning hospital with dedicated breast reconstruction recovery suites. Our patients are cared for by specially trained breast care nurses and monitored 24/7 with the latest monitoring techniques.

Patients deserve options. Patients deserve wholeness. Patients deserve expertise. That’s what they get that PRMA.
