Dr. Webber received his undergraduate Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Tennessee in Knoxville and his medical degree from the University of Tennessee, College of Medicine in Memphis, TN. His internship was served at Brooke Army Hospital at Fort Sam Houston TX, followed by a 4 year surgical residency at William Beaumont Army Medical Center in El Paso, TX. He completed 9 years of active duty in the U.S. Army and then moved to private practice in Knoxville, TN. His military career continued as an Air Force Reservist for the TN Air National Guard and he is now in the retired Air Force Reserve.
Dr. Webber received his board-certification as a general surgeon in 1978 and later became a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons. He has performed general surgery in the Knoxville area since 1975. In 1998 Dr. Webber decided to pursue his strong interest in breast disease by devoting all his professional practice to breast treatment, performing therapeutic and diagnostic surgery. His surgical office is at the Knoxville Comprehensive Breast Center and he operates at several area hospitals.
Dr. Webber’s philosophy of treating breast cancer is early diagnosis, minimal surgical treatment when feasible, and early return to normal activity.
Dr. Webber is a proponent of breast-conserving surgery because of its proven effectiveness, and strives continually to use the latest technology in the surgical treatment of breast disease. He was one of the first surgeons in the Knoxville area who was trained and experienced in doing sentinel node biopsies, which allow women to avoid the risk of full axiliary dissection which can result in lymphedema or swelling of the arm.
Dr. Webber is experienced in the use of ultrasound to identify breast lesions in the operating room. This technique is referred to as intra-operative ultrasound. It is used to find non-palpable lesions in the operating room, reducing the need for hook wire localization. Dr. Webber was the first surgeon in Knoxville to use this technique.
Dr. Webber has been and continues to be a leader in breast surgery, allowing for the best possible care of breast cancer patient. He is dedicated to helping his patients overcome breast cancer, getting them on the road to recovery and making that transition from breast cancer patient to breast cancer survivor (or better yet a “thriver”!)
KCBC is the best facility around Knoxville, TN. After doing some research, I found KCBC and the reviews were positive. I don't regret my decision. I became a patient of Dr. Webber's in 2007.
My first visit meeting with Dr. Webber was so comfortable. After our visit, I knew I had nothing to worry about. I knew it would all be ok. It was my journey and I would be fine. Thank you to the staff of KCBC for always being friendly and caring.
I have been going to KCBC for 31 years. My first visit was when I was 17 and needless to say it was overwhelming & very scary. I met with Dr. Kozlowski & Dr. Webber and had surgery to have a lump (fibroadenoma) removed. The Doctors and staff were so kind & caring and did everything to make me feel less scared & more comfortable. The whole experience sticks with me. Now, 31 years later I'm still a patient at KCBC. They are a wonderful group of people and I have recommended them to everyone. Thank you KCBC.
The compassion I felt from the staff the day I was diagnosed with breast cancer is my best memory of KCBC. I had no idea where to turn and I was immediately referred to Dr. Weber. It was a devastating time in my life but God has been with me all the way. That was 8 years ago this November. God bless all of you for the work you do.
When I was told that something was different on my scans that they wanted to check out, it was a very scary situation. However, the staff at KCBC was very through and helpful, especially Mindy Shultz-Fee (she is always friendly and eager to help), Dr. Wunderlich, Dr. Brigg, Dr. Webber, and Dr. Meyer. They are all very professional. They kept me informed in everything that has happened and don't keep you on pins and needles waiting for results like most medical offices do. I have been coming to KCBC for around 10 years and will never go anywhere else. I love KCBC and will recommend them to anyone.
Dr. George Webber and Laura were so kind to me when I was so scared. I’ve been a patient since 2002 and that is my best memory.
In June 2016 I went to KCBC for my annual exam and received a call back to come in for an MRI. I wasn't overly concerned as I had been called back before in my 20 years of going to KCBC. I finished the MRI and a biopsy. The entire staff was very kind and the doctor was methodical in collecting the samples. I couldn't see them, but I could hear and sense something was wrong. The doctor took 13-19 samples that day. The nurse was so comforting and explained that the doctor had left the room to review the slides, etc. It seems like this went on for hours. Her tone was consistent, her nature comforting, I have thought of her often over the months. She was incredible and I wish I had written her name down, and called or written to her. I was ultimately diagnosed with Stage II and had 2 Lumpectomy's, a Mastectomy and 4 chemo treatments. Dr. Weber is a class act, but so is nurse Lora. I called her so many times and each time she was wonderful. After all of the treatment I was bombarded with bills. My insurance was thru the Healthcare Market Place and there are no advocates available to patients. I realized then that cancer doesn’t end with treatment. My insurance didn't cover charges as they should. I called KCBC and someone in the office called on my behalf to ensure I got the maximum coverage. I chose those 3 ladies because of their compassion and support. KCBC is a story of kind women going over and beyond to get me thru a fearful time.
