New Surgery Spotlight: SIEA Flap Breast Reconstruction

The November Surgery Spotlight program is now live on PSEN. This month our exclusive HD video program features David H. Song, MD, MBA demonstrating SIEA Flap Breast Reconstruction.

Dr. David H. Song is Vice Chairman of the department of surgery and Chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at The University of Chicago Medical Center. He specializes in breast reconstruction and oncoplastic surgery.

Surgery Spotlight is a monthly video-based activity produced by the PSEN. The series of surgical videos aim to put you in the operating room with the demonstrating surgeon. Watch the advantages of this technique (vs. the free-TRAM or DIEP), and tell us what you think!

The full-length surgical videos can be purchased and viewed for CME credit, or a shorter version can be viewed for free on PSEN.
