Responsive, Compassionate Breast Care Focused on You

University Health System brings together board-certified, fellowship-trained UT Medicine San Antonio surgical oncologists, hematologists and radiation oncologists, specially trained nurses, patient navigators, physical therapists and other professionals to deliver personalized care for your breast health. From screenings to comprehensive treatment plans for all types of breast concerns, we cover all of your breast health needs.

Nationally Recognized Breast Care

We are a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence – one of only four in Texas – as designated by the National Quality Measures for Breast Centers Program (NQMBCP). We provide comprehensive, advanced care for all types of breast conditions, including breast cancer.

Through our partnership with UT Medicine San Antonio, we have access to excellent providers who help train the next generation of breast care experts. Our nationally recognized teaching hospital delivers advanced breast health treatments.

We also are San Antonio and South Texas’ first and only health system to earn Magnet status by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This designation represents our commitment to nursing quality. We have a proven track record of excellent care and positive outcomes.

Conditions

Our health specialists see thousands of patients every year. We treat women and men with all types of breast disease, including benign (noncancerous) conditions, breast cancers, breast pain and men’s breast issues such as gynecomastia. We focus on your specific needs and tailor our treatments to meet your goals.

Diagnosis

When you experience symptoms of a breast problem, you want answers quickly. We have the only facilities in the area to provide mammogram results while you wait, and we use advanced imaging procedures to rapidly diagnose any abnormalities in your breast tissue.

Tests and diagnostic procedures we use include mammography, ultrasound, MRI and image-guided biopsy techniques. Cancer genetics and high-risk breast cancer screenings are also available through our partnership with UT Medicine San Antonio.

Once you’re diagnosed, we share your test results and images in real-time with your entire breast health team through the most advanced electronic medical record system in the San Antonio area.

Treatments

We offer nonsurgical and surgical treatment options for all types of breast conditions, including cysts, mastitis and gynecomastia.

Our comprehensive approach to breast treatments includes many nonsurgical options such as chemotherapy, hormone therapy and lymphedema therapy. If surgery is recommended to treat your breast condition, we perform a full range of breast surgeries from simple excisions to mastectomies with reconstruction.

Support

Our goal is to support you before, during and after your treatment. We offer a robust suite of support services for you to access whenever you need them. Count on us to deliver a monthly women's cancer support group, community education, mobile mammograms and more.
