Blount Memorial Hospital plastic and reconstructive surgeon Dr. Matthew Becker has been selected for a national committee on breast reconstruction by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The ASPS Breast Reconstruction Work Group will tackle a variety of issues related to breast reconstruction including reviewing data to establish quality measures, evaluating standards of care and best practices, and exploring billing and coding systems. Becker was one of ten ASPS members selected to serve on the committee from a pool of applicants from across the country.
“It is an honor to be accepted into this committee,” Becker said. “This work group is great opportunity to help not only the patients in Blount County, but nationally, as well,” he added.
Becker joined Blount Memorial in 2013. He performs a variety of aesthetic and reconstructive procedures with an emphasis on aesthetic facial reconstruction, as well as cosmetic and reconstructive procedures of the breast.
Becker sees patients at Blount Memorial Physicians Group, located at 266 Joule Street in Alcoa.
