I was diagnosed with breast cancer in both breasts. Dr. Dellacroce did my reconstruction surgery (dflap.) He did an AMAZING job! He explained everything, answered all my questions and he is an extremely nice guy. When I go for my mammograms, the mammo techs always ask who did my reconstruction and they always comment on what a great job he did. There are no hideous scars. My breasts look totally natural. I can't say enough kind words about Dr. D!

From the UK - I travelled to New Orleans from the UK after finding out about Dr Della Croce and his hospital. I had had failed breast reconstruction in the UK and I was very nervous about taking on any further reconstruction even though I knew I was unhappy with how my chest looked. I felt totally at ease when I met Dr Della Croce, he is such an amazing man, I wanted the best if I was going to take on any further surgery and felt he was the best. I would highly recommend this skilled surgeon .
