Experience and Training

Dr. Cunningham knew she was meant for this work following a family member’s battle with breast cancer years ago. During that time, Dr. Cunningham observed the positive power of the breast reconstruction process to help a woman feel whole again after mastectomy or lumpectomy. Since then, she has been committed to helping her patients feel whole, physically and emotionally.

  • Lecturer at various regional and national plastic surgery meetings, including the annual meetings of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Burn Association

As a published author and contributor to various research projects, Dr. Cunningham is an active leader in the plastic surgery industry.

Dr. Cunningham deeply values charitable work and opportunities to give back. One such example is her international volunteer work for Nicolae Testemitanu University of Medicine and Pharmacy in Moldova. Volunteering as a surgeon in the department of neurosurgery, and in the department of oral and maxillofacial surgery, Dr. Cunningham performed operations on various parts of the body. This endeavor not only provided meaningful surgical experience but also gave Dr. Cunningham the privilege of helping people get their lives back who were faced with serious injuries, illnesses, and physiological conditions. She continues to look for opportunities to give back and stay engaged in the industry.
