You can depend on them to detect, treat, and help you heal from breast cancer.”

"A new breast cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming for patients and their families,” said Dr. Phillips of Stonegate Plastic Surgery of Lakeland. “At Stonegate, our goal is to educate patients about their options for breast reconstruction and provide a compassionate environment to help women feel confident in their body again.”
