Breast Care

The Breast Care Center at Lovelace Women's Hospital is New Mexico's only breast care center accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC).  Our breast health caregivers provide comprehensive breast care through preventive education, screening, diagnostics, and treatment of breast cancer. We are here to support you in maintaining optimal breast health.

Lovelace Women's Hospital's multidisciplinary team is a group of well-established physicians and experts that meet face-to-face weekly to discuss, in confidence, every patient with a suspected or confirmed diagnosis of breast cancer. This approach ensures that the best treatment options are presented to the patient.

You will be guided through mammograms, clinical exams and treatments. We teach you the proper method for breast self-exams – so that you are part of the team that is monitoring your ongoing breast health. We also offer patient navigation, education, referrals and support programs.
