Minas Chrysopoulo, MD FACS
Creator of the Breast Advocate App and Breast Reconstruction Specialist in San Antonio, Texas
I am a board-certified plastic surgeon and microsurgeon, and President of PRMA Plastic Surgery. I specialize in state-of-the-art breast reconstruction with a particular focus on perforator flap breast reconstruction, nipple-sparing mastectomy, techniques to maximize aesthetic outcomes, and restoring sensation after mastectomy.
I am also a strong advocate for shared decision-making (SDM) between the healthcare team and patient. I believe SDM is an extremely effective and ethical approach for delivering patient-centered, high quality healthcare with excellent outcomes.
To empower as many patients as possible, I created the Breast Advocate® App, the World's first shared decision-making app for breast cancer surgery and breast reconstruction. Breast Advocate® is a free app, co-created by breast cancer specialists and patient advocates, that provides anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis, or at risk of developing breast cancer, a much needed voice in their breast cancer surgery decision making.
Outside the clinical arena, I have strong interests in digital health and disruptive healthcare technologies.
