Breast Cancer and Reconstruction Surgery Completed by 1 Surgeon

Don’t settle for a deforming breast cancer surgery, expect to preserve, or even improve, your femininity.

Breast Cancer and Reconstruction Surgeon

Breasts are one of the most immediately recognized symbols of femininity which can be forever damaged by treatment for breast cancer.  The vast majority of women who are diagnosed with breast cancer will be successfully treated for and cured of their disease.  Unfortunately, far too many women undergo deforming surgeries that they must live with for the rest of their lives and serve as a daily reminder of their diagnosis.  Dr. Schwartz is the top breast surgeon in Atlanta and his mission is to ensure that never happens and that women can move on with their lives, proud and confident with their healthy, newly reconstructed breasts.  All reconstructive surgery from the time of diagnosis and forever thereafter is fully covered by insurance, so it is never too early, or too late, to start thinking about breast reconstruction.

Breast Cancer & Reconstructive Surgeon

Jean-Claude Schwartz, MD, PhD
Top Breast Surgeon In Atlanta

Dr. Schwartz is an internationally trained and recognized leader in the field of oncoplastic breast surgery.  He is rightfully referred to as the Top Breast Surgeon In Atlanta as there is no purely trained breast cancer surgeon in the United States with a more comprehensive reconstructive skillset nor who has made more original contributions to the varied areas of oncoplastic breast surgery than Dr. Schwartz. He is one of only two surgeons in Georgia, and a handful in the US, capable of breast tumor removal and immediate reconstruction in just one surgery. With over 6,000 surgeries performed, Dr. Schwartz is constantly perfecting and innovating new oncoplastic techniques to further improve a women’s breast appearance after breast cancer surgery.

I saw Dr. Schwartz 11/22 for a “minor” reconstruction, after he advised me about the procedure and how it should help. The office personnel, the nurses, Dr. Schwartz, and everyone in the surgery unit, made me feel well taken care of. Surgery is NEVER fun and always uncomfortable, but I was treated with kindness and care and it was much appreciated. Of course, I recommend this group! Debbie

After spending my entire adolescent and adult life with very dense, large breasts, I finally gave in to the neck, back and shoulder pain that I had endured for years. I vetted the doctors in our area and Dr. Schwartz was the surgeon I selected. He is very kind, personable and understands all the things I had concerns about. He has changed my life and I am so grateful to him for that! His medical team is excellent and I would highly recommend them to anyone who finds themself needing an exceptional breast surgeon.

Dr. Schwartz is VERY knowledgeable and very enthused about his specialty. Dr. Schwartz listened and answered all of our questions. I trusted him with every aspect of the process. He was aware of what all treatments I would likely receive during my initial visit. Dr. Schwartz shared his prior work and publication with us to aid in our comfort and trust. I had a bilateral mastectomy with reconstruction. I’m beyond pleased with the results. It’s also great to share a laugh or two with your doctor during this challenging journey. His staff was great as well. They answered and return calls promptly and always were friendly. 10/10 would definitely recommend. Thank you Dr. Schwartz!!!

I was scared to death, still am. Dr. Swartz was so understanding and knew what I wanted and needed done. I really look forward now to having my surgery done soon. The nurse eased some of my fears as I told her how scared I was. Thank you!

After going to a previous surgeon for a consultation for a breast reduction and leaving disappointed, I found Dr. Schwartz and even in just a consultation he made me feel so confident about getting the surgery. He listened to all my concerns and addressed them leaving me so excited for my surgery. His insight on everything puts you in a calm state and gives you a sense of trust, which is so important since you are being cut into. Either way I’m excited and more than ready for the relief and a better quality of life. Dr. Schwartz made me feel comfortable and I’m glad I chose him as my surgeon!!
