I was pleased to host her in Charleston, SC in 2008 and am thrilled that she could return to follow up on our progress," relates Dr. Massey. "Dr. Becker has been a wonderful mentor. I have enjoyed traveling with her all over the globe. I was pleased with the opportunity to share with her our advances here at the St. Charles Surgical Hospital in Lymph Node Mapping and our Research Programs under the National Institute of Lymphology. I think Dr. Becker was pleased to see the progress we have made over the past 4 years. Dr. Sullivan of the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery and I are excited that she will continue her relationship with us as we continue to bring this technique forward."
