Choosing to have surgery is a major life choice. Dr. Whitfield has personally been involved in helping make decisions about surgery since 1992 when his sister was diagnosed with breast cancer. Each patient has to know the risks and benefits so they can make and informed decision. With the proper plan and meticulous attention to detail each patient has the best opportunity for a successful outcome in my hands.
