Terence Myckatyn, MD, FACS

Dr. Myckatyn is a Professor of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. Dr. Myckatyn focuses on improving the quality of life for women who undergo mastectomy or lumpectomy by offering the latest, evidence-based approaches to breast reconstruction. With over 130 peer-reviewd publications, a dozen clinical trials, and numerous research grants in both breast reconstruction as well as nerve regeneration, Dr. Myckatyn has a long track record in improving quality of life for women who deal with the aftermath of the breast cancer management. This is a multi-pronged approach that includes helping women make informed decisions about their care that are not only appropriate given their breast cancer diagnosis as well as overall health, but also consistent with their values and lifestyles.
