This was a hugely popular episode of 2020 – I’m still getting emails & messages about this one!
In Ep. 89, I interviewed breast surgical oncologist Dr. Toni Storm, & she brought the house down with all the knowledge she shared with us. Knowing her perspective as the breast surgeon helps our OncoPT practice so much, especially when it comes to healing & potential complications.
Dr. Toni Storm is today’s podcast guest & is a breast surgical oncologist based out of Vancouver, WA with Compass Oncology & is a co-author of the latest edition of Spear’s Surgery of the Breast. We talk about lymph node surgery, seromas, cording, breast cancer removal procedures, & what we as OncoPTs need to know when working with patients after breast surgery.
Dr. Toni Storm is a breast surgical oncologist with advanced subspecialty expertise in oncoplastic techniques. In addition to the surgical management of breast cancer, she treats complex benign breast disease. She is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art care that includes innovative surgical approaches like nipple and skin sparing mastectomies, and incisional techniques similar to those used in cosmetic procedures. Her practice philosophy recognizes that the mind and body are not separate. Preserving a woman’s self-esteem is as important to her as getting rid of the cancer. She works closely with plastic surgeons so that, long-term, her patients can look in the mirror without a constant reminder they had cancer.
When not at work, Dr. Storm enjoys being a mom of two wonderful children.
