    How was your appointment with Dr. Crisera?

    Jul 15, 2020
    Dr. Crisera gave me my life back! There are not enough words to describe what an incredible surgeon and physician he is. I had been through two prior implant exchanges after my bilateral mastectomies for breast cancer and was facing a third at the time I met Dr. Crisera for a consultation. The first implant replacement was due to a constant infection resulting in adhesions, the second was from a ruptured implant, and the third due to a possibility of cancer from the implants themselves per a letter from the manufacturer. Dr. Crisera offered me the option of the DIEP procedure which uses abdominal tissue to form breasts in lieu of implants. He patiently explained in detail what the procedure entailed as well as the long recovery afterwards, but was confident he could achieve a more natural result and without implants again. I am so thankful to Dr. Crisera for helping me feel whole again and now can put cancer behind me.
