Surgeons at CHI Memorial Certified for Hidden Scar™ Breast Cancer Surgery

Two surgeons at the MaryEllen Locher Breast Center at CHI Memorial, Chattanooga, TN, are recognized as Hidden Scar-trained surgeons. Betsy Washburn, MD, and Mark Brzezienski, MD, are just the second breast surgeon/plastic surgeon team in the country, and the only team in the Southeast, to perform this breast cancer surgery technique, which effectively treats cancer while optimizing cosmetic results.

Hidden Scar Breast Cancer Surgery allows Washburn to remove the cancerous tissue through a single incision made in an inconspicuous area, preserving the natural shape of the breast while reducing visible scarring. The technique also allows Brzezienski to create breast reconstruction results comparable to those of cosmetic breast surgery.
