Radiation Wounds of Breast

The wounds tend to be quite chronic. Women end up spending many weeks and months and years getting dressing changes to try to heal these areas and they do not heal. They sometimes tend to get secondarily infected and are treated with antibiotics for weeks and months and years. Radiation wounds can be corrected and should be corrected. You do not need to live with this radiation wound the rest of your life. These radiation wounds can be corrected. Various flaps can be utilized to bring tissue into the area that is not radiated the tendons to heal this area.

  • review rating 5  My experience with Dr Jacobsen, MD has been a stunningly positive experience. Is he a highly skilled surgeon? Yes, without a doubt and I would not hesitate to seek his help with any problem whatsoever. He is an excellent communicator and answers any and all questions and concerns so that I knew what was going to happen and what to look forward to. His staff is excellent as well. Dr Jacobsen has put together a highly professional team across the board. Bob N. 2/28/18

  • review rating 5  I've had four visits with Dr. Jacobsen over the past 2.5 years, the first after the removal of 1/3 of my bottom lip from skin cancer, and the last for a biopsy of possible skin cancer on my nose. Each time, he has treated me with kindness and respect, and also had a level of confidence that made me feel relaxed with whatever he thought best for the particular problem. Thus far, the results have proven him correct. He has quickly become my go-to for any problem or condition that may create a cosmetic "issue". His office and staff make you feel welcomed and comfortable, and he promptly and generously responds to questions or concerns by email. One visit and you'll find these things out yourself.

They set up very real expectations for me after taking the time to help me understand what was hoped to be achieved. I have been treated with the highest respect and kindness. Dr. Jacobsen has an extraordinary bedside manner and met my needs and expectations in every way!

  • review rating 5  Dr Jacobsen performed surgery on the back of my leg to remove melanoma, I also had a sentinel lymph node biopsy at the same time. Dr J is professional, knowledgeable and very dedicated to patient care. I had to have the lymph node incision drained several times and he got me in quickly and also worked around my hectic schedule. He even came in while he was on vacation! He was always so reassuring and very kind. Dr J goes above and beyond! His office staff is very responsive and they are so pleasant to work with. I am grateful to have been referred to Dr J and his office😌

  • review rating 5  Dr J is the best! I have an ongoing issue with a medical implant that he has cleared up several times. Every time I contact him he is right there. This last time he actually met me on a Sunday to help me. I highly recommend Dr J. His bedside manner makes you feel that no matter what everything will be okay.

  • review rating 5  Dr J is a kind, compassionate, extremely gifted surgeon. I’ve now had two procedures preformed by him and both he explained and executed beautifully. He is always there to answer questions before and after surgery. You will most likely wait about a hour longer then your expected appointment time but he is definitely worth the wait.

  • review rating 5  I honestly cannot say enough about the entire experience. From the girls at the front to Dr. J, nothing was short of first class excellence met with an one of a kind feeling of being amongst people who really care. Whether its the little things of being offered water for every visit or Dr. J himself, you just get an incredible unrivaled experience here. Dr. J is extremely nice and genuine to say the least, and his work shows! I had a nasty raised scar from a dog bite and was really nervous to have that taken out, but the whole experience was virtually painless and smooth. Not to mention what Dr. J did was just flat out impressive. I can barely even tell there was anything there to begin with..so so thankful.
