      I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Hijjawi. He is an extremely knowledgeable surgeon and did a fantastic job on my delayed bilateral DIEP reconstruction. From the consult to the final post-op appointment, Dr. Hijjawi answered all of my questions and was extremely considerate and patient. Even my family was impressed with his professionalism and demeanor when he spoke with them in the waiting room. His bedside manner is second to none, which is very important when dealing with cancer patients.

      I would highly recommend Dr. Hijjawi for any patient who is considering have breast surgery. I had a bilateral breast reduction with a lift almost 6 months ago and couldn't be happier. I was having migraines, tension headaches, along with upper back and neck pain from my large breast. Since my surgery I've had 1 migraine, 0 tension headaches, and hardly any upper back and neck pain. I have not been to my chiropractor or neurologist since the surgery. Dr. Hijjawi is the best!

      Dr. Hijjawi is a gem. He is an excellent surgeon and a caring professional. He is kind and down to earth. Dr. Hijjawi and his team answered all my questions and heled me feel at ease. My surgery was a double mastectomy after a long battle with breast cancer. My procedure used tissue expanders and implants. The results exceeded my expectations. Every cloud truly does have a silver lining!

      Dr. Hijjawi performed an immediate DIEP Flap reconstruction after my prophylactic bilateral mastectomy since I am BRCA2 +. He surpassed all my expectations. Dr. Hijjawi has a great bedside manner with the skill and credentials I was looking for. He took the time to listen and explain the procedure, expected outcomes and all questions I had. I felt completely informed, prepared and confident going into my procedure. I could not be more pleased with my results. I would highly recommend him.
      in Rockford, IL |
      After extensive research, I decided to drive an hour and 20 minutes each way to receive care from Dr. John Hijjawi and his excellent team. I had a prophylactic bilateral mastectomy after a BRCA2 confirmation. Dr. Hijjawi balances unparalleled professional competence with warmth and a sense of realness not often found in highly specialized medical providers. He listened, answered every single one of my numerous questions, and I could not be happier with the end result. I highly recommend.

      I saw Dr. Hijjawi shortly after my breast cancer diagnosis. He was sensitive to the stress I was experiencing, considerate, and patient. Of all my doctors (primary care, surgical oncologist, medical oncologist, and plastics), he was the person who spent the most time with me and went out of his way to answer my questions, before and after my reconstruction.
      in Milwaukee, WI |
      Dr. John Hijjawi and his quality team made by journey with breast cancer an experience that was powerful and successful. From our first meeting I knew Dr. Hijjawi was an expert and master in breast plastics and dedicated to my well-being and education. He educated me on my surgicial options. He spent a lot of time with me and answered all my questions and addressed my concerns. Once I made my decision to have a mastectomy, I decided to have a Diep Flap and ended up with two lovely breasts.

      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.

      Dr. Hijjawi's Care Philosophy

      There are many choices for patients to make when choosing the right approach to their care. I believe it is absolutely critical to provide my patients with the information that will help guide them to the safest choice that is right for them. I am not here to make decisions for my patients, but rather to work with them in a shared decision making process that they will be satisfied with for years to come.

      Dr. Hijjawi says...

      My clinical focus has been reconstructive and cosmetic surgery of the breast for many years. I extended my training and expertise with an additional fellowship in DIEP Flap breast reconstruction at the University of Gent in Belgium. I have gone on to serve as the Program Director of the Reconstructive Microsurgery Fellowship at the Medical College of Wisconsin directing the training of future reconstructive breast surgeons.

      Dr. Hijjawi says...

      I have been fortunate enough over the past ten years of practice to have a busy enough practice to develop an expertise in reconstructive and cosmetic breast surgery. Having performed over 1500 breast cancer reconstructions as well as cosmetic breast surgeries, I am really excited by the evolving techniques available to help patients achieve the best possible results in the safest environment possible.
