What Patients Are Saying About Dr. Steven Pisano
Today marks four weeks post bilateral prophylactic mastectomy & immediate DIEP flap with Dr. Pisano. I’m s/p right DCIS. The recovery was way easier than I expected. I’d say the pain was controlled well, but there really wasn’t much pain. Initially standing was quite uncomfortable but I got the hang of it. The staff and surgeons at PRMA are some of the kindest and most skilled medical professionals I’ve met (and I work in the medical field). Thank you PRMA and Methodist Hospital!!!
PRMA has blessed my cancer reconstruction process on all levels. Dr. Pisano is very talented and experienced in the field of microvascular plastic surgery. I could not be more pleased. Thank you PRMA for making my life after cancer better.
Due to Ductal Carcinoma Insitu, I opted for a double mastectomy with DIEP flap reconstruction.
Dr. Pisano and his team performed the 10-hour surgery where they removed all breast tissue, sparing the skin and nipples. They removed tissue from my abdomen, giving me a ‘tummy tuck’ in the process. Every step was explained to me prior to surgery. I stayed in the hospital for 2 days, walking the morning after surgery. They have a FANTASTIC recovery protocol which controlled my pain so well I never took a narcotic! The folks at PRMA in San Antonio, TX are absolutely THE BEST!!! (One of my greatest fears was waking up with nothing on my chest and feeling deformed). Thanks to PRMA I had the reconstruction at the same time as the mastectomy so this fear was completely eliminated! I am now cancer-free, have a ‘new’ bustline as well as a flatter tummy. As I am expecting my very first grandson, this all means more to me than words can express!!! Thanks!
Dr. Pisano is very knowledgeable and an artist in his field. He thoroughly explained all the options available and answered my questions. I felt very confident about my surgery despite my very complicated case. The hospital staff that Dr. Pisano works with at Methodist Hospital are very good. They work as a team to give you seamless care. I followed all the instructions before and after surgery. PRMA has the flap procedures down to a science. I was healing well then back up and going before I knew it. The ability to recover without narcotics and anesthesia hangover is well planned out. Dr. Pisano is up for any breast reconstruction challenge. It was a huge challenge! His final aesthetics are tops in his field. I am blessed to have him as my doctor. You will not be disappointed!
I am 5 weeks post-op. Dr. Pisano did a beautiful job on my surgery. He is so thorough and kind. Kathleen was amazing and quickly responsive and encouraging to every question. Overall, I had an amazing experience of not just technical excellence, but loving care every step of the way. The good news is you are not alone as you go through this experience and help is just a call or email away. There is great peace of mind in that. My heart is full of gratitude as well. I feel so very blessed. ❤️❤️
I’m so glad I found PRMA and Dr. Pisano. The level of care and concern was amazing. He spent time talking to me about the surgery as well as just chatting. Meeting with him made it so much easier to let go of my fear and to have another surgery. I am 3 weeks post-op for stage 1, and I am doing great. I have lots of minor aches and pains but they seem to get better every day. I’m walking a lot and feeling normal mentally and emotionally. I am waiting for the swelling to go away and to be released from wearing the abdominal binder. Looking forward to my next appointment and getting on the calendar for stage 2. Thanks Dr. Pisano, Kathleen, and the whole PRMA staff.
Impressed with the staff from start to finish once I got my appointment. It did take well over 4 months for a consultation but once I was in, everything has been very smooth. I am 11 days post-op and headed to my first in-person appointment since I am traveling from Corpus. I hope the rest of my journey continues to be this smooth. I will update if need be but overall, people travel from all over to come here for a reason!
When I pulled into the PRMA parking lot, I was scared and thought that maybe risk reduction (prophylactic) mastectomy and reconstruction surgery was more than I was ready to do. My odds of having breast cancer were unacceptably high due to the mutated BRCA gene. However, after my first appointment with Dr. Pisano, who came highly recommended from a former patient, I was at ease and signed up for surgery! I could not be more pleased with the professionalism of Dr. Pisano, Kathleen, Amy, and the rest of the staff at PRMA. I felt confident that I had made a well-educated decision. I cannot say enough positive things about their protocol for surgery and pain management! I am delighted with the end result of the surgery. Dr Pisano delivered exactly what I had requested and we had discussed. San Antonio is a four hour drive for me, and being a patient of Dr. Pisano was definitely worth the drive!
Top doctor in San Antonio, if not the state. He knows what he’s doing, decades of experience, extremely accomplished and highly respected. The entire staff is professional yet friendly. You’re in great hands at PRMA.
During my first visit with Dr. Pisano he took the time to explain all my options in great detail and removed a lot of my anxieties. My husband and I left there feeling confident in the choices that were made. His nurse Kathleen is an absolute gem! I could and would email her often with my questions following the surgeries and she never made me feel like I was bother and was always there to help! Dr. Pisano and the team at PRMA were really able to take a bad situation and turn it into a positive.

Dr. Pisano is very knowledgeable and talented in his field. When I had my first visit, Dr. Pisano thoroughly explained all the options available for me and answered all our questions. My husband and I felt very confident about my surgery. Dr. Pisano’s nurse, Kathleen, is just as amazing and at anytime I needed a question answered she was either available right then or very prompt is getting back with me. The surgical staff that Dr. Pisano works with at Methodist Hospital are just as amazing. You can really see that they all work as team together, and often. That really brought calm to my nerves and my husband’s right before surgery. I followed all the instructions before and after surgery and I was back up and going in 3 weeks. I was back at work at 4 weeks. My incisions are hardly noticeable. The ability to recover so quickly really shows how much experience Dr. Pisano has. I really feel that if you are looking at having a surgery performed by the physicians at PRMA, that you choose Dr. Pisano and his amazing team.
The environment is very clean and professional. Doctors and staff are caring and friendly. My questions were all answered and was positively reassured about my procedure. I am extremely pleased with my results, PRMA plastic surgery is highly recommended.
Dr. Pisano is an amazing doctor and cares so much. The team at PRMA is so caring, understanding, and passionate about what they do. I know with this team I am in the best hands. Thank you for all you do.
I received the best care ever. They are only a phone call away. No questions too dumb to ask. Dr. Pisano and nurse Kathleen are awesome. Always feel great comfort around them.
They have been professional and have compassionate physicians. The staff is kind and they make the process stress free!
I will always be deeply grateful to Dr. Pisano, Kathleen and the PRMA team for turning the scariest thing in my whole life into a manageable experience. I am so thankful for Dr. Pisano’s experience and expertise, Kathleen’s caring and availability, Brittany’s compassion and communication skills and the entire PRMA team and system. No one chooses this awful disease. PRMA makes it not just survivable but helps make life worth fighting for. My reconstruction exceeds my expectations on all levels and I highly recommend them to anyone in this awful boat!
For women that are afraid or going through difficult decisions about what to do in regards to breast reconstruction, PRMA should be your only choice. I had breast cancer and had both breast removed. PRMA was the best decision I made. They not only take very good care of you but they leave you feeling better about yourself. I strongly recommend PRMA for every women needing breast reconstruction.
As a 35 year old single mom, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. Needless to say, I was shocked and terrified. Thankfully, I have a good friend who had been through this and she recommended PRMA for my reconstruction. I couldn’t be happier. Everyone in that office is a positive, kind, force of hope. I firmly believe there is no better place or group of surgeons to trust with your care. Awesome, awesome family of healthcare providers!
Everybody procedure I had was exceptional from the first surgery to the tattooing. I strongly recommend PRMA they do A+ work!
Dr. Pisano, Kathleen and all the staff o PRMA are wonderful. They explained and accompanied me each step of the journey. I recommend PRMA to anyone looking for help. May God bless each and everyone.
I am a cancer survivor and I have to say that Dr. Pisano did an awesome job on my boobs especially the reconstruction on the right side since I didn’t have one. I also have to say his staff/nurses are the best I have encountered, they are so knowledgeable and are there for you when you need them.
Dr. Pisano delivered what he promised…the entire team and staff are magnificent. The best money spend, don’t play with your look, selecting this well credentialed team is the best you can do to yourself ! Thank you !
Dr Pisano and Nurse Kathleen have been wonderful!! Thank you both for being so considerate and caring. Dr Pisano you have given me my confidence back. While I’m not 100% happy I am Thankful for all you have done for me. I’m very blessed and Thankful that I am Cancer Free and I’m here. You all are amazing and I’m glad I was introduced to PRMA

The only way I can describe my experience with PRMA is that I have been blessing. They are angels!
Dr Pisano is an excellent surgeon, his RN Kathleen is efficient – both are caring with great bedside manners. The entire office is one well oiled machine
I like it that when it’s your turn to be seen, you get their 100% attention.
Dr Pisano and his staff are amazing. Love them all. The ladies up front and when you leave are just so sweet as well. Considering the situation best medical experience. Most highly recommended.
I am BRCA positive and I attended a FORCE conference in PA to begin my research to seek out what direction I was going to go. After learning all the different options and having an opportunity to talk to so many people that are BRCA positive I decided that I didn’t want to sit across a desk to be told I had breast cancer. So I started my search for just the right surgeon. PRMA kept coming up the more I talked to people about my situation. After interviewing many surgeons, I knew the minute I talked to Dr. Pisano that he was the one. He and his staff are amazing! They did an amazing job and I’m so happy to be living without that fear. I will tell everyone PRMA is the only place to go.
Dr. Pisano and Kathleen were super!! Surgery by Dr. Pisano was excellent. Had no pain and I was very pleased with the way my body looked after healing. I would highly recommend him to anyone. Also Kathleen was super helpful. and sweet. Was always willing to answer questions. If I didn’t get her when I called I would leave a message and she never failed to call me back soon afterwards. She and Dr. Pisano make a great team. They both were good at explaining things and at making me comfortable.

When I came to PRMA everyone in the office made me feel as though not only me but my concerns mattered. They do awesome reconstructive surgery and keep you informed every step of the way. The doctors, nurses and ladies working behind the scenes are very caring, understanding and knowledgeable in what they do. I would recommend anyone who needs breast reconstruction to use them. They are wonderful!!
Very professional, nice, and caring. Great staff and excellent job done.
I’m currently a patient at PRMA for my reconstruction needs after breast cancer. They are very professional and care is outstanding. I’m so blessed to be a patient here. Would recommend them to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon especially following breast cancer. Thank you PRMA!!
Talented and compassionate staff, beginning with the doctors and continuing to the nurses and other staff members. These surgeons are the best in the business and know how to work with cancer patients and survivors. Thank you!!
Comment: I heard nothing but great things about PRMA before I decided to go there. Everyone there is great. The doctors are the best there and nurses are super awesome. I’m glad I made the right decision on going there.
Everybody here is great and friendly!
I started my reconstructive surgery with an expander put in when I had my mastectomy. A month later my primary doctor sent me for an mri for a problem I was having with my right shoulder. Because of the medal in the expander the mri burnt me from the inside out. I got a real bad infection and the expander had to be removed. When I was healed and ready for reconstruction I found out there was no one in town that could do the surgery I needed. I was first sent to MD Anderson which told me the recovery would be to hard for someone my age and would not do it. I then went to PRMA and had the surgery. That was six weeks ago and I am feeling great and doing most everything I normally do. Thank you all at PRMA
I liked the way Dr. Pisano took his time to explain everything and was very kind. I was also very pleased with his surgery–great job. I would definitely recommend him to others.
From the beginning I’ve felt personally cared for, informed, and confident in the procedure recommended by my doctor, Dr. Pisano, and his nurse, Kathleen. The other nurses and staff are wonderful as well. I love how the procedure has turned out so far – even with my scars beginning to heal I can tell I’ll be very happy with the final results.
It has been a privilege to be Dr. Pisano’s patient. In June of 2015, I was diagnosed with breast cancer and after speaking with the doctor about my options for surgery he inspired confidence in me that everything would be fine.The day of surgery I was not nervous at all. When I asked him questions he was sincere with his response about my expectations and the length of time to be considered, there were no surprises. He spoke with my family and I before the surgery and he was relaxed and confident. This experience was exceptional. The results from the reconstructive surgery are excellent, he has helped me to get my life back. I would recommend him because he cares about his patients and his standard of care is very high. I am married to physician for almost 18 years. I have met many physicians over the years and there are not many like Dr. Pisano, they are scarce. Thank you Dr. Pisano
I loved the attitudes of the Doctor and PA. Both were considerate and explained everything very well. Anytime I had a question I could call and if not available Kathleen called back soon. Everyone at the office was very efficient and courteous. I would highly recommend Dr. Pisano. His work is excellent!! I am very thankful for the care I received. I believe PRMA has a very caring and efficient staff. All who came to see me were cheerful, encouraging and a blessing.
I was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2014 and did not know what to do, until a coworker of mine told me about PRMA. I made an appointment with a surgeon in San Antonio and once I told him that I wanted a double mastectomy with reconstruction he made the call for me and made me an appointment with Dr. Pisano. Needless to say, almost two years later…. I am very pleased with the work that PRMA did. The entire staff is friendly and they make you feel comfortable before and after. Thank you for changing my life and making me feel whole.
Dr. Pisano was very thorough. He explained things well to where I was able to understand and took time to make sure I would be satisfied.

I’ll was diagnosed with breast cancer March 3, 2014 and had a bilateral mastectomy on March 31st. After healing I did chemotherapy, luckily with no radiation, and finished that September 3. In October I saw a local plastic surgeon that informed me of my options for reconstruction. After a lot of research i decided to do the DIEP flap. As no one in my state does that procedure, I did more research. A lot more! I decided PRMA was the place for me! Dr. Pisano and his staff are the best. Because i live out of state, I chose the 2 day turn-around to save a trip, and also because I knew, (after reading everything on their web page and talking to them on the phone and through emails) that I didn’t need the face to face consult I originally thought I needed! I saw Dr. Pisano on Monday, April 20, 2015 and had DIEP flap reconstruction on April 22. I went back to San Antonio in September for phase 2. Without a doubt, there cannot be any physicians anywhere that are more skilled, compassionate, or devoted than the ones at PRMA. I will do phase 3 locally, probably in December. I couldn’t be happier with the results of my reconstruction and will be eternally grateful to Dr. Pisano and the entire staff at PRMA.
I felt very comfortable with the staff and Dr.Pisano. Kuddus to all to making full whole again. I love the results

I had both breasts reconstructed by Dr Pisano after an oncologic surgeon removed the breast tissue due to receiving a diagnosis of Stage II invasive ductal carcinoma. Dr Pisano took the time to answer all my questions, giving me all the information I needed to feel comfortable about the reconstructive process and about his expertise to do it. He is an excellent surgeon, with many years of experience. His attention to detail in the reconstruction was superior. I was in the hospital for five days, and either Dr Pisano or Dr Ochoa, who assisted in the reconstruction, followed up with me every day I am very happy to recommend PRMA – not only did I have a great experience with Dr Pisano and his staff, I’ve heard nothing but excellent things about all the members of the PRMA group.
Looking back at my journey I’m blessed to have found PRMA and Dr Pisano. I was talking to a friend of a friend about an oncologist in San Antonio when she told me about Dr Ledoux. I called to schedule an appt and the sweet Receptionist told me he was booked but Dr Pisano had an opening that day. Who is Dr Pisano I asked???? We’ll let me tell you.. What I appreciate and respect about Dr Pisano is his honesty and authenticity. The number of surgeries he’s performed speaks for itself but never did I feel like the next patient. He genuinely cares for women who are dealing with breast cancer and goes above and beyond to make sure you feel comfortable. I’ve often said that as a women I would not let just anyone cut my hair so I certainly would not let anyone perform surgery on my breast. Dr Pisano is an amazing person and surgeon He’s meticulous and passionate about his work and he exceeded my expectations. Thank you Dr Pisano for taking care of me. Many blessings to you and your family.
Dr. Pisano is AMAZING! When going through what was the most difficult time of my life, Dr. Pisano was there for me and made me feel whole again when I never thought it was possible. Him and his entire staff at PRMA were unbelievably caring and understanding. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering breast reconstruction after breast cancer.
