Vanderbilt University Medical Center
Vanderbilt University Medical Center has been at the forefront of groundbreaking cancer research and treatment for decades. This history includes the work of Nobel laureates Earl Sutherland and Stanley Cohen, whose research in cell communication and growth are now the foundation of many of today's breakthroughs in cancer treatment. In 1993, all cancer-related research, treatment, education at Vanderbilt culminated into one entity when the Cancer Center was formally established. Building on the Cancer Center’s legacy, the Vanderbilt Breast Center at One Hundred Oaks offers comprehensive screening, diagnosis, and treatment with the most groundbreaking technology and medicine available. The Center is designated as a Breast Imaging Center of Excellence by the American College of Radiology for outstanding personnel and use of state-of-the-art equipment for mammography, stereotactic breast biopsy, breast ultrasound, and ultrasound-guided breast biopsy.
"While there may be controversy regarding the value and timing of screening mammograms in the minds of some experts throughout our country, we at Siloam are very aware that no controversy exists in our minds whenever fearful, vulnerable, and impoverished women are seen. The real problem is that of lack of resources. To have the option of sending these very women to the 'best' is a rare treat, and one that has a profound effect on the lives of those so well cared for. Thanks for taking the time to care for the 'least of these' with such expertise and kindness!"
