The University of Kansas Cancer Center is expanding its breast cancer surgery program to the Indian Creek campus in Overland Park.
Dr. Amie Jew and Dr. Christa Balanoff have moved their long-established breast surgery practice to the Indian Creek campus located north of I-435 and Nall.
Dr. Jamie Wagner, who comes to The University of Kansas Cancer Center from M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, will practice at Indian Creek in addition to her practice at the Bloch Cancer Care Pavilion Westwood and The University of Kansas Hospital.
“The University of Kansas Cancer Center is an exciting place to practice breast surgical oncology. It shares our philosophy of a patient-focused practice and provides many options for patients. It is a great fit for our practice,” Dr. Jew said.
“This is a thrilling opportunity to be a part of the most outstanding breast surgery program in the region," Dr. Wagner said. "It is one of the leading comprehensive breast programs in the country that includes breast surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, plastic reconstructive surgery, prevention and survivorship. Furthermore, the National Cancer Institute designation brings novel techniques and innovative trials to the patients we serve.”
“The University of Kansas Cancer Center’s Breast Surgery program provides state-of-the-art breast surgical care that is an integral part of the multidisciplinary NCI designated KU Cancer Center. The Breast Surgery Center at Indian Creek will provide the expertise of experienced breast surgeons who have dedicated their medical practice to the care of patients with breast disease,” said Dr. Carol Connor, section chief for breast surgery.
All three new surgeons have the title of assistant professor in the University of Kansas School of Medicine.
