Plastic surgeons Frank DellaCroce, MD, and Scott Sullivan, MD, are partners with similar experience in performing breast reconstruction procedures for mastectomy patients that
use the body’s own tissue. Dr. DellaCroce happens to be left-handed, and Dr. Sullivan is right-handed, producing mirror-image surgical skills.
“One surgeon using GAP Flaps to reconstruct both breasts at once would be a marathon surgical session,” says Dr. Sullivan. “Operating simultaneously, we have been able to complete more than 100 reconstructions over the past 14 months with an average operating
time of seven hours and 47 minutes.”
