I would recommend Dr. Topal to all of my friends or family. She is so professional and kind and takes the time to answer your questions and work with you...and her work is exemplary. I felt very confident under her care and wouldn't hesitate to go back to her for any kind of work.

Saw injury. Finger cut in half, broken bone, tendon, joint blown open, and nerve in tatters. I thought the worst. Dr. Topal reassured me; got me into surgery right away. Her skillful work over the next 4 hours knit the pieces back together, under microscope, painstakingly and with exacting attention to detail. Dr. Topal resurrected my right hand which I depend for my livelihood. And her detailed stitches and care in repairing the cut have left me 7 weeks later with a normal hand! She cares.

Dr. Topal is an excellent doctor. She has great knowledge and expertise. Dr. Topal put me at ease almost immediately with an excellent bedside manner. Her staff is very welcoming and also reassuring. I am very grateful also that she accepted my insurance and fortunate that I was able to get on her cancellation list to be treated by her!

Dr. Topal says...

Breast surgeries are a special area of interest for us. When we perform these procedures, we are helping women and men to regain or improve their confidence, comfort, and sense of well-being. Some breast surgeries, including post-mastectomy or lumpectomy reconstructions and some reductions, are considered non-elective medical procedures and are covered by most insurance plans. Often, reconstructive breast surgery can be scheduled concurrently with a mastectomy procedure. Procedures include: Breast Reduction This procedure provides relief for symptoms, such as back pain, related to large breasts. Breast Reconstruction This refers to immediate or delayed reconstruction of the breast after mastectomy or lumpectomy, Implant reconstruction, Tissue expander/implant reconstruction, TRAM flap reconstruction, using your own tissue from the abdomen. Cosmetic Breast Surgeries We perform, Breast augmentation, Mastopexy. Correction of gynecomastia, Gender reassignment Top surgery.
