I was very unsure of getting a breast reduction because I was concerned with scarring. When the weight of my breasts pulling me forward caused my neck muscles to be inflamed and pinch nerves I began to reconsider. The pinched nerves caused me to have issues holding things in my left hand. Having scars no longer was an issue because the surgery had to be done to prevent long term nerve damage. Dr. Trojanowski took the time to explain how the procedure would work at the initial evaluation and was very through in answering my 2 page list of questions. Her office was fantastic in working out the insurance issues of getting coverage. I was unsure if the insurance would cover it but the office manager assured me that they would do whatever they could to get the insurance to realize the medical necessity of the surgery. The office also had financing options available that I would have used if the insurance hadn't panned through. The only thing that I regretted was having my surgery the Friday before Labor day because it was hard to reach Dr. Trojanowski and the nursing staff was horrific at Scottsdale Shea campus. There were 4 different nurses because of shift changes and each time their was a change there was an issue with the prior nurse informing the following staff with the status. The nurses said that they tried to reach Dr. Trojanowksi and couldn't get a hold of her in regards to the pain medications. I am not how sure how much of this was true or if the nurses were just pushing the blame elsewhere just to get me to stop questioning the medication changes. I am highly allergic to codeine and vicodin and the nurses tried to give that to me even though it was listed in the chart. I'm including all of this in my review because it is likely that Scottsdale Healthcare-Shea would be the hospital that the surgery would be done by Dr. Trojanowski. I was very happy with the results of the surgery. The recovery was rougher than I was expecting but the results and the instant elimination of the neck and arm pain. Dr. Trojanowski was very professional and I would recommend her to anyone that is considering a breast reduction. She truely is a perfectionist and always returned my calls when I had questions about my scars healing. It was a decision that I am glad that I made and that I went with Dr. Trojanowski as my surgeon.
