“I am a 68 year old woman who suffered from shoulder and neck pain for over 30 years. I had always been afraid of getting a breast reduction due to fear of strong pain meds and the recovery time. I finally went to Dr. Hess who assured me I would be able to handle any discomfort with Tylenol. And, that worked great because the pain wasn't anywhere near as bad as I thought it would be. Tylenol for 3 days and that was it. I am a very active horseback rider and Dr. Hess understood how important it was to me to have small breasts, not only to relieve neck/shoulder pain, but to make it easier to ride my horses a lot of miles. The surgery was a breeze and I was back on my horses 12 days post-op. Shoulder and neck pain is virtually gone! I am thrilled to have gone from an F cup to a B. I highly recommend Dr. Hess for this procedure as he was very caring and concerned about giving me what "I" wanted.”

“I chose Dr. Sanden for an elective procedure. He was honest, thoughtful and cateful. His assessment was thorough, his staff is extraordinarily well organized and kind. I felt , surprisingly, like a valuable work of art. The surgical procedure was meticulously done by every team member, and the follow up appointments were thorough and careful. I wish every medical practitioner and office staff were as good. And he has a really good sense of humor!”
“I had a very involved , 7 hour surgery done by Dr. Sandeen in March, 2017. His expertise and follow-up care were excellent. He also possesses a great sense of humor and bedside manner. I would highly recommend him.”
