Personal profile

Board Certified in Plastic Surgery, Dr. Spiegel has trained with leading reconstructive surgeons around the world, developing and improving techniques to minimize the after effects of breast cancer on a woman's body. She serves as Director at the Center for Breast Restoration at The Methodist Hospital Institute for Reconstructive Surgery. Her vision combines a dedication to advanced research, exceptional education and the development of new, less invasive treatments.

Research interests

Dr. Spiegel's clinical expertise in breast reconstruction and microsurgery allows her to focus on innovative surgical techniques, such as muscle-preserving flaps: DIEP, SIEA, GAP, TUG, and the TAP for optimum results. The use of autologous tissue for reconstruction provides the restoration of a natural breast appearance. Dr. Spiegel offers the most complete form of breast restoration by reattaching nerves and thereby reestablishing sensation.
