"Dr. Tandon Was Amazing" Reviews from Our Patients

I met with Dr. Tandon 4 days post a chemo treatment to discuss breast reconstruction options. I was not looking my best (bald, glass, bags under my eyes, and sweatpants) so I walked in feeling self conscious. Dr. Tandon was amazing. He took his time explaining everything and what he thought was best options for me. He made me feel confident and beautiful on a day I felt the worst. I cannot wait to see my results in a few months!

It can be very overwhelming!   Dr. Tandon is patient, compassionate, knowledgeable and most importantly, extremely skilled in performing a variety of reconstruction procedures...

Committed to Helping Breast Cancer Patients Get the Care They Deserve

Although Dr. Tandon has trained in all areas of plastic surgery, he is particularly interested in helping women who are preparing for, have recently completed, or have long since completed a mastectomy. 

He understands how dramatically cancer and mastectomy can change a woman's body and life, so he wants to provide the most compassionate and comfortable care possible. Among their patients, Dr. Tandon and his team in New Orleans are known for being extremely professional, friendly, and patient-focused. 

Dr. Tandon is fully committed to making advanced breast reconstruction procedures easily accessible. He was recently personally involved in the passing of a state law that requires hospitals to fully inform breast cancer patients about their surgery options. Because of his outstanding commitment to the well-being of women, Dr. Tandon has also been featured in Louisiana Health & Fitness Magazine.

Dr. Tandon's skill rebuilt my body after my  cancer surgery, but his caring and compassionate (and humorous) attitude kept my outlook on life on track.   I have never been a negative person, but cancer can make you question so much.  Dr. Tandon never let me doubt that i could make it through.  I would recommend him to everyone who is facing my  situation, or who wants a physician who really cares about the total you.  Thank you, Dr. Tandon, for everything!

A frightening diagnosis of Breast Cancer was my first visit with Dr. Tandon. His consult was extremely thorough, unhurried and his compassion - obvious. Little did I know, at that first visit, that I was seated across from the surgeon who would make the most difficult time of my life much more than manageable. Dr. Ravi Tandon is highly skilled and his training extensive.  His Nipple Sparing Bilat Reconstruction, in my case, far exceeded even my own expectations, as it is now impossible to tell that there was breast surgery...

Understanding Your Insurance Options

Whether you undergo breast reconstruction immediately after a mastectomy or years later, your procedure should be covered by your health insurance. The Women's Health and Cancer Rights Act of 1998 (WHCRA) requires group health plans that pay for a mastectomy to cover reconstructive surgery and any procedures you may need to restore the balance between the breasts. We can assist you through the process should you have questions.

Choosing a Breast Reconstruction Surgeon

When you are faced with a life-changing diagnosis like breast cancer, you want the best possible team on your side. Choosing a highly qualified breast reconstruction surgeon who combines surgical skill, attention to detail, and aesthetics is instrumental to the outcome of your surgery.

We are confident in the level of experience and compassion that we offer patients. During your consultation at our New Orleans practice in Metairie, we encourage you to: 

Bring Questions

During your appointment, Dr. Tandon will review all of your surgery options and discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique. Throughout the process, he encourages patients to ask questions so that they can make informed decisions and become active participants in their treatment.
