Dr. Fisher's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Fisher "Dr. Christine Fisher is a board-certified plastic surgeon focused primarily on taking care of breast cancer patients, specializing in breast reconstruction techniques using perforator flaps, such as DIEP flaps. For appropriate candidates who are experiencing lymphedema after breast cancer treatment she offers lymphatic surgery including lymphovenous anastomosis and lymph node transfer. She also performs cosmetic plastic surgery of the breast and body. Dr. Fisher is compassionate and committed to providing the same care she would want for her own friends and family to her patients. Her goal is to provide personalized care and safely achieve the best possible aesthetic outcome for each individual patient. Dr. Fisher graduated medical school with honors from the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston and moved to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to complete her training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. During her plastic surgery training, she cared for patients with breast cancer, head and neck cancer, severe trauma, extremity salvage and burns, using both traditional as well as microsurgical reconstructive techniques to solve a spectrum of functional and aesthetic problems in any area of the body. She trained in microsurgical perforator flap (DIEP flap) breast reconstruction at Magee Women's Hospital and studied microsurgical lymph node transfer to treat upper extremity lymphedema with Dr. Corrine Becker in Paris. Dr. Fisher has an affinity for the precision and artistry of plastic surgery, and its potential to help improve and restore a patient's form, function and confidence. Dr. Fisher won the Gold Foundation Humanism and Excellence in Teaching Award twice and the Department of Plastic Surgery teaching award three times. She has published multiple peer-reviewed articles and book chapters in topics ranging from regenerative medicine to patient safety. Following her research fellowship she continues to have an ongoing interest in the potential applications of adipose-derived stem cells and fat grafting in soft tissue restoration. Dr. Fisher is proud to serve on the Medical Advisory Committee for the Breast Cancer Resource Center and is a regularly invited guest speaker on topics related to breast reconstruction, as well as an Art Bra® Austin sponsor, the organization's signature annual fundraiser. She regularly attends national breast and microsurgery meetings to stay up to date on the latest research and uses an evidence-based approach to provide optimal, state-of-the-art care. She is also an associate professor of surgery at the Dell Medical School. When not in the hospital or clinic, Dr. Fisher enjoys spending time with her husband and three young children. She bakes on weekends, is energized by live music, and relaxes by jogging, swimming and doing other outdoor activities."

Absolutely. Dr. Fisher is very thorough and exacting in her explanation of the surgery you may need. There is a very easy and cheerful vibe from her staff and that means they are all happy to be there! Wonderful practice to have been suggested to by my Cancer Surgeon, Dr. Jane Nelson, MD.
