      breast reconstruction after mastectomy for breast cancer
      Nashville, TN |
      I had triple negative breast cancer and opted to have bilateral mastectomy and breast reconstruction. This road to recovery avoided radiation, but required visits to Dr Wendel every three weeks. Every encounter was exceptional! Minimal wait time, yet each person took their time to answer all of my questions. While this process was no walk in the park, Dr Wenel and his staff gave me confidence, calmed my fears, and eased my pain along this journey. As an added bond, I had a face lift! Beautiful
      in Lebanon, TN |
      Dr. Wendal was very kind, compassionate and knowledgeable about the procedure I had done. In the first session I had with him, he used a lazer to remove the tattoo I had for many years. There wasn't any pain, and it only took 10 seconds! I was impressed with him and his staff and will definitely recommend him to others.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
