Some women choose to have breast reconstruction after breast cancer surgery. This is something you need to discuss with your physician, as well as a Hurley plastic surgeon. Reconstruction options include a synthetic breast implant or reconstruction using your own tissue. These operations can be performed at the time of your breast surgery or at a later date.

From diagnosis to treatment to breast reconstruction to long-term follow-up, Hurley Medical Center’s Breast Health Nurse Navigator helps breast cancer patients navigate the complicated and stressful world of breast cancer.

Breast Cancer Support Group: Pink Perfection
The ‘Pink Perfection’ Breast Cancer Support Group meets the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month from 3-4:30pm at Genesys Hurley Cancer Institute, 302 Kensington Avenue in Flint.
With a certified social worker, Hurley’s Breast Health Nurse Navigator co-facilitates the ‘Pink Perfection’ Breast Cancer Support Group. These bi-monthly meetings give current and former breast cancer patients the chance to share with and learn from others. All aspects of breast cancer from diagnosis through treatment to survivorship are discussed.
Patient- and Family-Centered Care
Patient- and Family-Centered Care, a new way of delivering healthcare which involves the patient and the family in medical decisions, is at the heart of Hurley Medical Center’s approach to breast health and cancer treatment. Our Breast Health Nurse Navigator encourages patients to bring their family members and friends to the initial meeting where she explains everything involved in a diagnosis of breast cancer, including breast reconstruction. Including patients and their families in the decision-making process empowers them to make choices about treatment, and just as importantly, produces better results and increased patient safety.
