On Cancer: Meet Reconstructive Surgeon Babak Mehrara

By Memorial Sloan Kettering  |  Wednesday, August 8, 2012

Dr. Mehrara talks about the expertise of Memorial Sloan Kettering plastic surgeons and how patients with breast cancer and head and neck cancer benefit from recent advances in reconstructive surgery.


I had my surgery with Dr. Mehrara. He not only is an excellent surgeon but he is understanding, patient and concerned with all his patients. His calm manner puts you immediately at ease. He has all the right instincts to be the kind of doctor that everyone wants. My first surgery was 30 years ago. I thought no one could be as compassionate as my first doctor. Dr. Mehrara met all my expectations. And an after note...the surgery went perfectly. He also has wonderful people in his office who make you feel right at home.

Dr. Mehrara is a skilled surgeon. He takes time to answer any questions, even if you asked them before. He explains the process then works with you for the best possible outcome. If complications arise he is able to provide the medical intervention while giving comfort. His work after many years has passed the test of time. He has given me confidence in my appearance. I will be forever thankful.
