What Is Breast Surgery?
Breast surgery involves surgically modifying the breast tissue in both men and women. As experienced general surgeons, our team specializes in breast surgeries for benign and malignant tumor removal, lumpectomy, and mastectomy procedures. Gynecomastia, which is a condition where the male breasts are enlarged, can be treated with breast surgery if the condition is causing undue stress, pain, or embarrassment. Our surgeons also perform lymph node biopsies and dissection if cancer is a possible concern.

"I was misdiagnosed with hemroids. I seen several doctors they all said I had hemroids and they gave me hemroid medication. None of the doctors nor the medication was able to help me. I lived with this pain for a long time. I did my own research to find a doctor that could truly help me. I found Sierra Pacific Surgical. The doctor was extremely knowledgeable about my condition. He educated me with extensive information. He diagnosed me with fissure and gave me the proper medication. I have seen alot of improvement . I'm still taking the medication."- J.M. / Google / Jun 13, 2022
"Dr. Chen was great. Very professional, high level of communication and, most importantly, a fantastic surgeon. Despite the mess he had to work with (me), he was able to do a perfect surgery and give me the best case scenario outcome with minimal recovery time. I hope you don’t ever have to go see him, but if you need to, he’s your man."- M.M. / Google / Jun 10, 2022

"Actually I am rating Dr. David Skeehan 10 STARS ... along with his Entire Team @ Sutter Roseville Outpatient Surgery Center. Absolutely 1st Class care & concern from the moment I walked into the pre-op area, through surgery, post-op & then departure for home; plus a wellness call the next day. Dr. Skeehan performed an operation/procedure on me: diagnostic laparoscopy, robotic assisted incisional hernia repair with mesh. I only have three tiny incisions, yet he corrected 10 years of gut agony from 3 Major Surgeries. (#2 - being Emergency) - caused by Dr. #1 mishap during her removal of my Sigmoid colon; so diseased from 30+ years of diverticulitis attacks. I consider the referral to see Dr. David Skeehan a total God-Send Blessing.💕"- J.M. / Google / Jun 10, 2022
How Is Breast Surgery Performed?
Breast surgeries are performed by our team at an accredited surgical facility in the Northern California region. A lumpectomy is a breast surgery where an abnormal or malignant growth is removed while conserving as much of the breast tissue as possible. A mastectomy is the partial or complete removal of one or both breasts, typically carried out for the treatment of breast cancer. During these types of breast surgeries, our physicians may excise surrounding tissue and one or more lymph nodes to conduct a biopsy and determine if cancer has spread. Gynecomastia surgery is also offered by our skilled team to remove excess breast tissue in men and reshape the chest area for a more contoured appearance. Directly following any type of breast surgery, the experienced general surgeons at Sierra Pacific Surgical will do a post-op consultation to go over aftercare plans.
