Our Practice

Breast Reconstruction Experts

Exceptional and Personalized Patient-Focused Care

The surgeons of the Advanced Reconstructive Surgery Group are breast reconstruction subspecialists.

Our highly specialized practice is specifically devoted to the most innovative and advanced methods of restorative breast surgery. Our mission is to help women fighting breast cancer, or undergoing risk-reducing preventative mastectomy, restore their bodies, and their lives.

Amongst the plastic and reconstructive surgeons of our team are respected leaders and pioneers in the most advanced methods of breast reconstruction and microsurgery. Together, Drs. David Greenspun and Heather Erhard have performed over 1,000 microsurgical perforator flap breast reconstruction procedures with a roughly 99.5% or better success rate. Their reputation puts them amongst the most trusted breast reconstruction specialists anywhere in the world, and therefore our practice regularly welcomes out-of-state and international patients. Dr. Andreas Lamelas recently joined our team from Harvard University; his focus is on breast reconstruction and on treating lymphedema associated with breast cancer treatment.

The Surgeons of the Advanced Reconstructive Surgery Group believe in shared decision making and believe that different approaches to breast reconstruction are right for different people. In addition to natural-tissue breast reconstruction, reconstruction using breast implants is a regular part of the group’s practice.

The doctors of the Advanced Reconstructive Surgery Group are in-network with many major health insurance plans including:

  • United Health Care
  • Oxford Health Plans
  • Cigna
  • Blue Cross-Blue Shield (Anthem and others)
