What is Capsular Contracture? Capsular Contracture is the condition where the breast feels firm after breast augmentation.  When an implant is placed under the breast, the body forms scar tissue surrounding the implant.  This scar tissue is called a “capsule”.  Over time, in some patients, the capsule gets thicker and tightens, squeezing the implant and making the breast feel firmer.  The case of this condition is not clear, although we suspect multiple factors involved with the condition, including subclinical infection, contamination, hematoma, etc.  Statistically, Capsular C...

11.28.2017 | Category, Blog, Frontpage Article

My dear friend, Dr Gudata Hinika, had a big dream of building a hospital in the rural Ethiopia where he grew up.  It took many years of hard work, but finally Negele Arsi General Hospital and Medical College opened its door to the community in July 2017.  Dr Hinika, a general surgeon/trauma surgeon in Los Angeles, asked me to undertake the first educational trip to the hospital, work with the local surgeons, transfer the knowledge and skills to them so that they will be sufficient to provide the care to the community.  They have three general surgeons, who covered general surgery, trauma, o...
