Mastectomy/Breast Reconstruction Pre-Op Class

For women who are planning a mastectomy with or without breast reconstruction to treat their breast cancer, Torrance Memorial offers a class to help women prepare effectively for surgery, understand what to expect during surgery and hospitalization, and be better prepared for post-discharge care at home. The class is free but pre-registration is required. For more information about the mastectomy/breast reconstruction pre-op class, contact Evelyn Calip, RN at the Cancer Resource Center at 310-517-7077.
