Care Philosophy

I believe it is vital that I 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.Read more

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 vital that I 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 in 2007. 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. I have also been fortunate enough to serve on the faculty of over 50 educational conferences over the past 10 years teaching other practicing plastic surgeons the latest techniques in reconstructive and aesthetic breast surgery.

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.
