Jessica Erdmann-Sager, MD
Jessica Erdmann-Sager, MD is a plastic surgeon and breast reconstruction specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Foxborough, Massachusetts. With expertise in reconstructive microsurgery of the breast, she offers numerous types of autologous (free flap) breast reconstruction, including the DIEP flap, DUG flap, PAP flap, SGAP flap and SIEA flap, to meet each patient’s unique needs after breast cancer and mastectomy.
Flap breast reconstruction uses a woman’s excess tissue, usually taken from the abdomen, buttocks, or inner thighs, to recreate breasts. To potentially restore sensation to the reconstructed breasts, Dr. Erdmann-Sager also offers Resensation®. Resensation is a surgical technique in which surgeons reattach nerves in the flap of tissue used to create breasts with nerves in the chest. A nerve allograft (donated nerve) bridges the gap between the nerves, and helps to support nerve regrowth. Over time, this may result in restored sensation.
