The following is an article highlighting our breast surgery practice that was published in Northwest Quarterly, Spring 2018 edition, written by Lindsey Gapen, the Managing Editor of Northwest Quarterly Magazine:
There are two sides to every surgery. Evaluate the perspective of a patient versus a surgeon as they discuss how compassionate care and innovative technology lead to better outcomes.
Surgery will never be “fun,” but its goal is to create a better quality of life. Through compassionate care and innovative technology, surgeons are continuously saving and improving the lives of their patients.
Just ask Donna Haen, a patient who underwent surgery four times during 2017. Or ask Dr. Daniel J. Farrugia, a fellowship-trained breast surgeon who exudes empathy for patients and enthusiasm for new technology. Their stories champion the humanity inherent to surgery.
