Dr. Spiegel is honored to be invited to speak at the WSRM Congress this weekend in Seoul Korea.  She will be presenting on “ Aesthetic Refinements in Autologous Breast Reconstruction” to other reconstructive microsurgeons from around the world.  

The (WSRM) is a world premiere organization that was created when the International Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (ISRM) , established in 1970 and International Microsurgical Society (IMS), established in 1972 merged. The organization organizes meets every two years bringing together world renowned reconstructive microsurgeons to share their thoughts, ideas and techniques, and to meet pioneers in different specialized fields within the field of reconstructive microsurgery. The theme of the WSRM Congress this year is “Bridging the gap and beyond”.

Houston hosts Super Bowl

NRG Stadium Super Bowl

This year Houston is hosting the 2017 Super Bowl and welcoming the NFL’s Atlanta Falcons and the New England Patriots to our fine city.  No matter who you are routing for, we hope you enjoy the experience and festivities.  With our close proximity to NRG Stadium and approximately 1 million visitors expected in Houston, traffic will be unusually heavy in and around the medical center.  The week prior to Super Bowl may be particularly difficult to travel in the city since most events leading up to the big day are in and around the downtown area.  If you have an appointment anywhere in Houston, it would be wise to plan for additional travel time.

Dr. Aldona J. Spiegel and her breast reconstruction team at the Center for Breast Restoration are excited for Super Bowl 51 and wish both NFL teams the best of luck!  May the best team win!

It’s important to know we are not alone AND we don’t have to face breast cancer alone.

Dr. Aldona J. Spiegel’s patients, Jenna, Aleena, Melissa, and Sylvie share their stories about breast reconstruction and their experiences as a patient of Dr. Spiegel’s in an article published by Best of HTexas 2016 . HTexas is Houston’s Premiere Lifestyle Magazine featuring the best of the best in Houston Texas.  Each of these lovely women underwent a different surgery with Dr. Spiegel. Among the surgeries, a lymph node transplant, double mastectomy breast reconstruction, prophylactic skin and nipple sparing double mastectomy with tissue expander to impant reconstruction and a bilateral deep inferior epigastric perforator flap (DIEP). As an advanced breast reconstructive microsurgeon Dr. Spiegel is transforming women’s outcomes in breast restoration.  Not only are her reconstructions and restorations remarkably normal in appearance post surgically, she is returning sensation to women’s nipples when possible.  Until recently this was thought to be a pie in the sky dream of breast reconstruction patients, but with Dr. Spiegel’s microsurgical expertise we are seeing promising results.

Bra Wall of Hope-Houston

I wanted to share an event I just heard about this morning. Today, October 27, 2016 at Memorial City Mall in Houston, Texas (I-10 near Gessner) radio station KRBE 104.1 has erected a “BRA WALL OF HOPE” that will honor and benefit those affected by breast cancer.  As of this morning, it was estimated to be 70 ft. tall.  The money raised from this campaign will go to designated charities, including the Susan G. Komen® Houston.
