Treatments your doctor won't tell you about

Breast cancer survivor Janice Collins gave silicone implants the benefit of the doubt not once, but twice: The first surgery resulted in an infection, the second in a lopsided breast. Only a chance meeting with another breast cancer survivor led her to investigate the DIEP flap, a reconstruction that would use her own abdominal tissue to build a breast that feels and looks natural.
"Not even my own doctor had mentioned this procedure to me," says the 61-year-old probation administrator, who ultimately received a DIEP flap and couldn't be happier with it.
The technique is just one of several advantageous treatment options — for hip arthritis, uterine fibroids, depression, and other conditions — your doctor may not tell you about.
