Removal of the Chemo Port!

I had a patient today who asked that we remove her chemo therapy port… as part of the steps of breast reconstruction,
we were also performing some balancing/touch-up’s to the breast reconstruction and the chemotherapy port (which is placed for intravenous placement of chemotherapy medication) is often visible on the upper part of the chest under the collarbone….

regardless, there are a number of patients certainly eager to have it removed, and it is certainly a milestone in the whole process of breast cancer treatment and reconstruction!
