The Women’s Boutique at Riverview Health has once again received a three-year mastectomy accreditation by the American Board for Certification in Orthotics, Prosthetics & Pedorthics, Inc.

The award recognizes organizations that provide products such as wigs, specialty bras and breast forms for women who have undergone chemotherapy treatment or mastectomies after a breast cancer diagnosis.

“We’re excited to achieve this accreditation again as it reflects on the high-quality care we provide and the great work our certified mastectomy fitters do to help patients physically as well as emotionally,” said Terri McCall, manager of the boutique. “We’re really here to support patients who have gone through life-changing procedures, such as a mastectomy, to help them feel like themselves again.”

This award represents the highest level of accreditation achievable in the profession of orthotics and prosthetics.

Appointments can be made by calling the boutique at 317-770-2444. For more, visit riverview.org/womensboutique.
