MBAS is at the forefront of breast reconstruction and performs more than 200 DIEP flaps a year. The physicians are highly knowledgeable on the current innovative breast reconstruction techniques including SIEA flap, GAP flap, TUG flap, PAP flap and autologous fat grafting.

“The physicians of Midwest Breast and Aesthetic Surgery are excited to join our colleagues at Advanced Reconstructive Surgery Alliance (ARSA),” said Dr. Ergun Kocak, co-founder of Midwest Breast and Aesthetic Surgery. “This thoughtful integration of reconstructive and plastic practices will raise the bar of quality even higher by disseminating best practices across the reconstructive ecosystem.”

“What makes this alliance strong is that ARSA and MBAS share the common vision of providing the highest quality patient-centric care,” explained Andrew Elkwood, MD, CEO of ARSA. “We share a mindset that seeks to improve patient care, both in the clinic and in surgery, and to maximize back-office efficiency.
