Breast reconstruction is designed to rebuild a woman’s breast after a mastectomy. In the past, women in Windsor-Essex had to travel outside of the region for the procedure, because Windsor Regional Hospital did not have the required resources.

With the recruitment of two new plastic surgeons WRH is now able to offer the program.

More information on breast reconstruction and the options available in Windsor can be found in the Breast Reconstruction Patient Education Booklet.


BRA DAY 2018

On November 27, 2018, WRH hosted its first Breast Reconstruction Awareness (BRA) Day event for patients, family members, and healthcare professionals to learn more about the program.

WATCH: The following video was recorded live in the Windsor Regional Hospital Auditorium at the BRA Day event. Plastic Surgeon Dr. Hana Farhang and her patient Lee Monaghan share their expertise and experiences and answer audience questions about breast reconstruction.
