(ST. JOSEPH) – Community members are invited to join Spectrum Health Lakeland plastic surgeon, Nicole Phillips, MD, and general surgeon, Maria Rapciak, DO, for a free, online seminar titled “Breast cancer surgery: Before and after.” The seminar will be held virtually on Tuesday, October 26 from 6 p.m. to 6:45 p.m.

Participants will be emailed a link on how to join and can ask questions during the event. During the seminar, Drs. Phillips and Rapciak will discuss surgical options for treating breast cancer and how reconstruction following a mastectomy can help women feel confident in their body again. 
“One in eight women are diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime and each of their stories are unique,” said Dr. Rapciak of Southwestern Medical Clinic Surgical Specialties. “At Spectrum Health Lakeland, our local team of specialists has grown. You can depend on them to detect, treat, and help you heal from breast cancer.”

"A new breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming for patients and their families,” said Dr. Phillips of Stonegate Plastic Surgery of Lakeland. “At Stonegate, our goal is to educate patients about their options for breast reconstruction and provide a compassionate environment to help women feel confident in their body again.”
