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.

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.

Client testimonials

It’s always the word of mouth that’s the best advice. Here are some of our client testimonials.

Dr Jean Claude Schwartz is an outstanding surgeon. Breast cancer is a scary and very frightening diagnosis. As I was diagnosed with Stage Breast 3A Breast Cancer, I was referred to Dr Schwartz. He explained the entire surgical process of my lumpectomy and then my reconstruction via his flap procedure. Dr Schwartz truly cares about each and every one of his patients, as does his entire staff. He puts his patients ‘at ease’ by taking time explaining all the options and procedures that are best suited for each individual patient. If a person is diagnosed with breast cancer and surgery is needed, I highly recommend Dr Schwartz. He is truly THE BEST ! His office staff is very kind and friendly, as well as being quite helpful. Dr Schwartz and staff are definitely the BEST ‘A TEAM’ in this field of surgery.

As an RN, I had researched Dr. Schwartz as well as other surgeons and oncology programs around Metro Atlanta while awaiting the biopsy results. I saw Dr. Schwartz within hours of receiving those results and was immediately at peace with him as my surgeon. He was caring and extremely informative concerning surgical options recommended for the size and location of my positive tumors; as well as answering all my other questions. Dr. Schwartz continued to be informative and share resources for me to educate myself further through this whole journey. I elected a bilateral mastectomy with plan for reconstruction using my own tissue understanding this would not be a singular surgery. Following chemotherapy, I had a Goldilocks procedure to ensure optimal skin preservation through radiation. Post radiation, I had a bilateral muscle sparing latissimus flap graph reconstructive procedure. Not only is Dr. Schwartz a talented surgeon, he is compassionate, caring and humorous all characteristics I appreciate.
