Midwest Breast and Aesthetic Surgery is proud to offer a fellowship in microsurgical breast reconstruction. With over 200 perforator-based free flap breast reconstructions per year, our practice provides a high-volume setting for exposure to this growing sub-specialty.
We perform our surgeries in both smaller specialty centers and larger tertiary care hospitals across several private healthcare systems. This creates a unique opportunity for Fellows to appreciate and understand how to build and sustain a largely reconstructive practice outside of purely academic environments.
We are dedicated to education and scholarship and support research projects. Fellows are encouraged to publish and present their work at national meetings.
We are happy answer any questions or provide additional information to any interested individuals. Please send requests to [email protected] or call 855.687.6227 during regular business hours.
