Date:6/18/2009

NEW ORLEANS, June 18 /PRNewswire/ -- The St. Charles Surgical Hospital (SCSH) is proud to announce it is the first hospital to develop a dedicated and comprehensive lymphedema treatment program complete with trained specialists, therapists, and advanced cutting edge techniques. Drs. Scott Sullivan and Frank DellaCroce, principal surgeons at SCSH and co-founders of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery, have created the first program of its kind in association with Marga F.

"This newest program allows us to offer the most comprehensive breast reconstructive procedures available," states Dr. Sullivan. "It is our vision, as the only hospital dedicated to breast reconstructive surgery in the world, to provide our patients this type of cutting-edge technology within a compassionate, patient-centered environment."
