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”!)
My best memory of KCBC is my last visit! I was scared when they said I needed an ultrasound! My mother just went through breast cancer with Dr Webber helping her along the way! I was scared, but KCBC did the ultrasound right away! NO WAITING, NO DAYS OF WORRYING!!! Wow! That’s what I call service and superb patient care!! You all are so kind, caring, and understand the needs of your patients. Thank you.
I went into KCBC because I felt a lump on my breast, made an appointment and talked with them about my concerns. They did a mammogram and an ultrasound and found I had Stage 2 breast cancer in 2017. Talking with the doctor and being so worried, everyone made this day on how I was going to fight this cancer and go forward in life gave me such comfort.
The step by step process with KCBC made my fears go away. I had a lumpectomy and proton radiation. Afterwards I have had 3 more mammograms and ultrasound with KCBC and all have come back cancer free. The people here are wonderful especially Dr. Wunderlich, Dr. Webber & Dr. Brig who I still see and I always recommend them to everyone! The staff is so professional and I can't say enough about them. My Mom comes to KCBC now!
The wonderful care I received after being diagnosed with breast cancer 19 years ago. From Dr K to Dr Webber to Lora to Dr Brig’s wonderful dry sense of humor, I felt hugged, loved embraced. I carry this whole experience with me all the time when I face hard times, when I see people facing hard times. My youngest daughter said “Mom, you have picked the best place to go, so they are going to make you well” and you did. Thank you
I was planning a move from Wisconsin to Knoxville, when I was diagnosed with breast cancer in October, 2017. I had surgery while I was still in Wisconsin and made the move to Knoxville in January 2018. I was fearful of having to find a new health care team in the Knoxville area, but was very excited when I discovered KCBC. I contacted them before my move and the staff was so warm and welcoming. They were very accommodating and understanding of my situation, and immediately scheduled appointments for me. They assisted in getting the necessary medical records transferred. I felt confident that when I arrived in Knoxville, I would be well taken care of! I had an appointment with Dr. Webber in January and I still recall sitting in his office looking up at the sign which reads (not sure of exact words): “No problem is too big for God --not even cancer.” I knew I was in the right place. Thank you for such outstanding care and Happy Birthday!
My first experience with KCBC was last October 6th 2017. I came in for a screening mammogram during Mission Mammography. I instantly fell in love with the atmosphere of the office. Once my mammogram was completed, my aunt and I left. We hadn't made it far before I got a call that something had showed up. I returned on Monday October 9th and had a ultrasound & biopsy done.
Dr. Brown was absolutely amazing to me as she told me it was more than likely cancer. She held my hand while I cried & even explained everything in great detail to my husband & myself. On October 10th I received a call from Dr Brown that it was in fact Breast Cancer & again she helped me stay calm & answered all my questions that I had. In the following weeks I had numerous tests done & got an appointment with Dr Webber who is one of KCBC’s breast surgeons.
He is 1 of the best, most friendliest down to earth Doctors I have ever met. Dr Webber & the KCBC staff explained my options & helped me get my insurance set up & referred me to Dr Brig my Oncologist. I have since completed Chemo, had a double mastectomy, & completed 6 weeks of radiation. I'm currently still getting Immunology Infusions & working on Reconstruction. I decided to share to help someone else. I'm so grateful for the staff of KCBC. I highly recommend all of my friends to KCBC as they have an amazing staff and wonderful doctors.
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.
