TTUHSC Amarillo Breast Center of Excellence

Survivor Clinic

This out-patient fortnightly clinic is dedicated to breast cancer survivors. We believe that completing the cancer treatment is NOT the end of our commitment to our patients. This clinic focuses on overall quality of life issues faced by cancer patients, including cancer surveillance, long-term treatment related complications and psycho-social adjustment related problems in conjunction with the CPRP. The goal is to provide support, treatment and cutting edge management strategies to ensure excellent quality of life after the cancer experience. Specific investigations will include:

  • Follow-up mammograms / surveillance for recurrence
  • Arm measurements for lymphedema surveillance
  • Shoulder range of motion testing
  • Pre-tested quality of  life questionnaires
