Dr. Rock has over 10 years of experience performing oncoplastic breast surgery that preserves and can even enhance the appearance of a woman’s natural breast while safely removing cancerous tissue. While in Atlanta, he helped pioneer Nipple Sparing Mastectomy and has helped refine that procedure to benefit more women who require or choose to have a mastectomy as part of their breast cancer treatment. He has personally performed a Nipple Sparing Mastectomy procedure on over 500 women. Dr. Rock has used various techniques to help hundreds of women avoid unsightly, disfiguring scars, and was recently honored by receiving Hidden Scar Surgery Certification recognizing his expertise and contributions to the technique. In addition to minimizing the scarring associated with surgery, he has developed an Enhanced Recovery After Surgery program that minimizes or eliminates pain after surgery. Dr. Rock is involved in Breast Cancer clinical research and has presented his research at national breast cancer meetings.
