    LW, My surgical oncologist is Barry Feig at MD Anderson, Mays Clinic. He did my surgery in 1997 for the Phyllodes Tumor and then did my BMX in 2019. I asked for a PS close me for the BMX (supposedly the best at MDA) but I think Dr. Feig would have done a better job based on my surgery in 1997 where I lost roughly half a breast. For the BMX, he did not cut up into the armpit for the sentinel node--which I greatly appreciate. I highly recommend him.

    Hi LW,

    I recommend Dr. Kelly K. Hunt, Professor & Chair, Department of Breast Surgical Oncology, Division of Surgery, The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, TX. Please search the MDA CC site. She is well accomplished and an amazing physician.

    Please PM me if you have any quest

    Thanks, illimae. The breast surgeon on my team is young and doesn't seem to have much experience, so I have a concern about her and want to have some names in case I want to swap. It's amazing how difficult it is to get actual feedback on doctors.

    How are you doing these days?

    Thanks so much, Beesy! I won't be having my mastectomy until next summer (probably July), but I want an experienced surgeon who can do an aesthetic flat closure for no reconstruction. I've been looking at mastectomy scars online and I don't want to be mutilated.

    Thanks so much, IHaveBreastCancer. It's amazing to get so much feedback from all of you; I have spent hours pouring over the MDA website and it's frustrating to sift through all the doctors. I appreciate the recommendation very much!

    so how can this have been in 'my favorites' and haven't seen these April posts. And now it's September. Anyone else in Houston just chugging along?

    LW - how are you doing?
