Texas Breast Specialists-Amarillo provides breast imaging and diagnostics that enable women to make important treatment decisions with their physician. Our understanding team is a partner with our patients. We take the time to fully explain and advise patients about the imaging options available and guide each patient through the diagnostic process.
For patients who need additional treatment options, Texas Breast Specialists is a part of Texas Oncology, an independent oncology practice focused on community-based cancer care, and the Amarillo Breast Center of Excellence. Patients have access to comprehensive breast care, including medical and radiation oncology, surgical therapy, and other breast treatments.
Amarillo Breast Center of Excellence
The Amarillo Breast Center of Excellence is a collaborative partnership between Texas Breast Specialists, Texas Oncology-Amarillo Cancer Center, Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center at Amarillo, and Northwest Texas Healthcare System. The center enhances patient care and expands the treatment options available in the region. Using a interdisciplinary approach, the center aims to provide patients with comprehensive care for every aspect of breast cancer.
In October 2010, the Amarillo Breast Center of Excellence became the first breast cancer program within 350 miles of Amarillo to receive a three-year, full accreditation designation by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC), a program administered by the American College of Surgeons. NAPBC accreditation has been granted to only 210 breast care centers nationwide, following a rigorous evaluation process.
Texas Breast Specialists is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology (ACR). The ACR designation recognizes the center’s earned accreditation in mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, and breast ultrasound.
