Breast Care & Research Center
The Breast Care & Research Center at Indiana University Health West provides patients with the highest quality of care and unsurpassed service in an environment that is designed to create a sense of calm, comfort and efficiency. Our physicians, therapists and other caregivers are locally-and nationally-recognized experts in their fields. Fully committed to their patients' health and well-being, our physicians provide care that is coordinate, comprehensive and compassionate.
For most women, monthly self-exams, together with regular clinical breast exams and mammograms are routine, followed by a positive report that all is well. But for women whose exam raises the question of a possible cancer diagnosis, and for those with a confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer, we understand that making patients "well" means more than treating the disease.
