Dr. Adhikari has had training in all forms of breast reconstruction using implants and muscles as well as microvascular surgery. A lot of clamor has been raised regarding the performance of prophylactic mastectomy in BRCA-1 positive individuals in recent days as has been exemplified by Angelina Jolie.
Dr. Adhikari believes that the decision to go in for prophylactic mastectomy should rest with the patient herself and her family and he offers prophylactic mastectomy in women who would like to get their breasts removed to decrease the chances of developing breast cancer followed by reconstruction by a variety of techniques so that the patient would not feel that her breasts have been lost.
