Connect with Dr. Chrysopoulo


Dr. Chrysopoulo, who goes by “Dr. C.,” specializes in state-of-the-art breast reconstruction with a particular focus on perforator flap breast reconstruction, nipple-sparing mastectomy, techniques to maximize aesthetic outcomes, and restoring sensation after mastectomy. He has authored and co-authored several book chapters and scientific articles in peer-reviewed journals and is routinely an expert speaker at regional, national, and international academic meetings.

Dr. Chrysopoulo has dedicated his professional life to advocating for people with breast cancer. He strongly believes that shared decision making between the physician and patient is crucial in achieving the best outcomes and has built his practice on this philosophy. To empower as many patients as possible to advocate for themselves, Dr. Chrysopoulo created the Breast Advocate App, a free app that provides anyone with a breast cancer diagnosis, or at risk of developing breast cancer, a much-needed voice in treatment planning.

Dr. Chrysopoulo is an active member of several professional societies including the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, for which he serves on several educational committees.
