1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer

Not all breast cancers are the same. You need a surgeon with experience, skill, and knowledge to take you through your diagnosis and treatment. Dr. Vertrees trained at the largest breast center in the military and brought her extensive experience to Columbia. She works closely with a multidisciplinary team to ensure that you receive the best care personalized to you.
