According to some estimates, there are over 3.7 million cataract surgery procedures in the United States every year. This makes cataract surgery one of the most common surgical procedures you might undergo. When you have cataract surgery, the cloudy and obstructed lens behind your eye is removed via a tiny incision. This lens is then replaced with a new, synthetic version, improving the clarity and vibrancy of your vision.
Healing is a process. That’s especially true when it comes to patients who are recovering from breast cancer treatment and mastectomy. For many patients, post-mastectomy reconstruction is a critical step in that journey of recovery.
Breast reconstruction post-mastectomy is a plastic surgery procedure designed to help restore the appearance of lost breast tissue.
For many patients, breast reconstruction can represent a return to normal or a reassertion of control over one’s body. Some patients may be reluctant to pursue post mastectomy reconstruction, in part because they assume it’s a cosmetic procedure and will need to be paid for completely out-of-pocket. However, breast reconstruction is nearly always covered by your health insurance. This means there’s nothing stopping you from achieving the body you want for your post-cancer life.

Bunion surgery is an outpatient procedure that can correct the deformity and remove the prominent bone, diminishing your discomfort and helping you become more mobile once again. After bunion surgery, you’ll be able to return to the activities you enjoy.
