Patient Programs

The TTUHSC Breast Centers of Excellence truly provide a “comprehensive” approach to breast care.  This is achieved via two interdependent approaches: a comprehensive facility-based assessment and treatment of breast disease; and a robust community-based approach for effective outreach, education and advocacy. The facility-based programs encompass the entire array from benign disease to high risk status for cancer to multidisciplinary management of breast cancer.

The university facilities also offer a State of the Art academic environment for teaching of basic breast care to medical students and a structured (and accredited) subspecialty training fellowship training for advanced level graduates of surgical /gynecology residency programs; the centers focus on research in clinical, basic and educational sciences. The community-based programs have a hub at the facilities in Lubbock and Amarillo that actively engage in the community outreach programs partnering with Komen Foundation, Amarillo Area Health Coalition and other groups across West Texas. 

The community outreach specifically targets the unique cultural and socio-economic milieu of West Texas with innovative programs to raise awareness and provide services to this largely underinsured population through leveraging the Cancer Prevention Institute of Texas prevention funding opportunities.
