Dr. Arash Momeni is an Assistant Professor of Surgery in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. In addition to offering all reconstructive modalities following mastectomy, Dr. Momeni has developed cutting edge surgical approaches to post-mastectomy reconstruction such as hybrid breast reconstruction (i.e. the combination of free flap transfer and implant placement) and techniques of flap neurotization with the goal to improve sensory recovery to the reconstructed breast.
