RECONJOINT – Survey to Assess Patient Preferences for Breast Reconstruction

TCRC Study


Ronnie Shammas, MD, Plastic Surgery Resident, Duke University Medical Center, Durham, North Carolina



Are you a patient who has been diagnosed with breast cancer, or a genetic predisposition (i.e. BRCA gene), and have considered breast reconstruction after mastectomy? We want to learn more about what women value when considering a decision to have breast reconstruction and study how treatment preferences may be different across various patient populations. Your responses to this study will help us develop a tool that can help educate and improve shared decision-making for women considering breast reconstruction surgery.

What does participation involve?

Patient must complete a 30-minute online survey. If you would like to receive a $25 gift card as a thank you, please enter your email at the end of the survey.

Must be:

  • Black women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer, or who have a genetic predisposition to breast cancer (BRCA1, BRCA2, etc.)
  • Individuals who are 18 years old and over
