As part of our community health partnership with Valley Health, our conversation this month focused on plastic & reconstructive microsurgery. Dr. Neal Topham with Valley Health Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery joined me for the conversation.
Dr. Topham explained the term microsurgery and talked about the various reconstructive surgery options that can aid in recovery (both mentally and physically) for cancer patients, bariatric patients, and others.
We discussed his professional journey - what drew him to his specialty and why he chose to relocate his practice to Valley Health. He explained how flap surgery works and gave reasons why it can be beneficial. We talked about the types of surgery that insurance will cover and those it typically does not.
