This week, Dr. James Craigie of The Center for Natural Breast Reconstruction answers your questions.
Q: I am a 56 year-old woman who has Poland’s Sydrome. I have no right breast tissue. Are any of your procedures appropriate for my condition? What is the cost? Because my condition is congenital, I will not be covered by insurance.
A: I have seen many patients with Poland’s syndrome who we were able to help. As you know, there are many different problems–mild to severe–that can occur. All of our patients who have had reconstruction of their breast due to congenital (Poland’s) problems have been covered by insurance. So don’t give up on getting coverage. I will be glad to give you more information about your situation if you like. My office will be happy to contact you, too. Just let us know.
