Everyone at the UMC Breast Center of Excellence works as a team to ensure patients are receiving the care they need and deserve. You are never merely treated as a case. We understand your life is being interrupted, and we want to help you get it back.
Your care is top-notch.
At the UMC SWCC Breast Center of excellence, we offer multiple aspects of care. But we have something most other breast centers don't: a surgeon specifically trained in breast surgery. Nothing that is unnecessary and/or too costly will be done on patients. Our rate of second operation is 4.7 percent, well below the national average of 35-40 percent.
We also offer international research trials, as well as initiated research, through Texas Tech University.
