Dr. James A. Butterworth offers the latest, most innovative treatments in breast cancer reconstruction surgery at The University of Kansas Hospital in Kansas City.

By adding the Resensation® technique to free flap breast reconstruction, Dr. Butterworth now offers breast cancer survivors the opportunity to potentially restore sensation to their chest after breast removal surgery. The advanced surgical technique is part of his commitment to providing excellent, patient-centered care.
