Warning: May be graphic for some viewers. Partial nudity. Illustrated by Stephen Cascio. In collaboration with University Plastic Surgery in Chicago, IL., breast reconstruction cancer patients can now better understand complex procedures though simplified medical illustrations.
The anatomy of complexity made simple.
In the most difficult of times while combating cancer and post-cancer reconstruction, learning your options can be a very emotional and stressful. Now, the team of doctors at University Plastic Surgery lead by Dr. Loren S. Schechter, have the proper visual tools to help a patient understand the nature of the human body and the choices they have to look better, feel better and know that they can get back to their everyday life.
“Through all my illustration works, this project was the most meaningful. ” -Stephen Cascio
A well conceived medical illustration plays a vital role in a patient-doctor setting. The illustration should be comforting to look at, easy to understand and engaging. A highly trained and experience surgeon will now be able to communicate through the illustration a plan and next steps—which importantly builds the patient’s trust and confidence in not only the procedure, but in the doctor.
As seen here in the above photo, the procedural illustrations where presented by the University Plastic Surgery group at the 2011 Chicago Breast Symposium held at Roslin Franklin University, Chicago Medical School. Studio of Life also assisted in the branding of the Chicago Breast Symposium posted here.
