Jason Cacioppo, MD

Jason Richard Cacioppo, MD is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon with Community Health Network, headquartered in Indianapolis. With offices in Kokomo, Indiana, and Indianapolis, Dr. Cacioppo’s clinical specialties include breast reconstruction for breast cancer survivors.

Dr. Cacioppo has extensive expertise in microsurgical breast reconstruction, such as DIEP flap breast reconstruction, in which excess tissue from the abdomen is used to recreate breasts in women who have had a mastectomy. Dr. Cacioppo trains other surgeons in the DIEP flap breast reconstruction technique.

He also offers Resensation®, a surgical technique that may restore sensation to the breasts of women who choose DIEP flap or other autologous (free flap) reconstruction using their own tissue. When performing Resensation, surgeons reattach nerves in the flap of tissue used to create the breasts with nerves in the chest, using a nerve allograft (donated nerve) to bridge the gap between the nerves. Gradually, the nerves regenerate, and sensation potentially returns.
