Excellent Surgeon

I was diagnosed with stage 1 breast cancer in 2016. I started with a unilateral mastectomy and reconstruction. Before my exchange surgery I found out that I have a genetic mutation that increases my chances of certain cancers by as much as 40%. I therefore opted for a second prophylactic mastectomy. Dr. Cober was supportive of my decisions and checked up on me after each surgery to make sure I was doing well and that my pain was managed. During this process I got to spend a lot of time with Dr. Cober. I actually looked forward to our visits (how many doctors can you say that about?). He is great at explaining procedures and options, quick with jokes and puns but most importantly he is an excellent surgeon, a kind and compassionate person and a true artist with the human body. I am very happy with the end results. I highly recommend him.

Dr Cober did amazing work on a tissue transplant and reconstruction after my mastectomy

I had a free tram flap tissue transplant after a unilateral mastectomy. After that healed, I had a breast reduction on the opposite side, then after that healed, I had the areola and nipple recreated. Both breasts are now symmetrical, comparable in size, lift and the nipple and areola look natural. There aren't many doctors in Oregon who perform this procedure. I was referred by my oncology surgeon whose sister had the same procedure performed by Dr Cober. I am so glad she referred me because I couldn't be happier with the result. I have a lot of confidence in Dr Cober's experience and expertise and if I ever need another plastic surgery, I will definitely and only go back to him.

Dr Perfectionist!

In 2017 Dr Cober reconstructed my bilateral mastectomy. Glad I was able to have him do that as well as a bracioplasty. Both surgeries were done beyond better than what I expected especially for my age of 67. He not only a perfectionist but a fun doctor too! I highly recommend him and his staff AWESOME!
