We cover all aspects of care.

In doing so, we offer support services for patients and their families. These include: counseling, patient navigation, nutritional support, and acupuncture. Learn more by clicking on these tabs on the side.

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 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.

We invite you to schedule your mammogram or diagnostic procedure at our new UMC Breast Imaging Center on the UMC Health System campus. Our goal is that the new spa atmosphere, warm robes, and advanced technology will help ensure high-quality breast care experience.

We are proud to have the region's only fellowship-trained breast imaging radiologist and are honored to continue to serve you by empowering you to be proactive about your health.

Ladies Night Out

Ladies Night Out is a monthly, after hours screening event. We understand the importance of your health as a woman, and we want to make keeping up with your recommended mammograms as easy and enjoyable as possible. So, ladies, grab your friends, call 806.775.8600 and ask about 'Ladies Night Out'.
