New York law to educate women about breast reconstruction options

I just read that there New York Gov. David Paterson signed legislation requiring all hospitals to tell female patients about options for reconstruction after mastectomy; it is amazing that it has required a mandate for patients to find out about their options in one state….. however, I tell my patients that even in this country no more than 1/3 of patients undergoing a mastectomy have breast reconstruction, which means 66-67 percent don’t have any reconstruction!
