​Dr. George Webber

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”!)

Dr. Webber is amazing!! He was mine and my Mommy’s Cancer Surgeon when we both got diagnosed for breast cancer. All the staff there at KCBC are very sweet and nice. 🙏🏻❤️

Cristy Layman

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.

Patsye Thurmon

When I got breast cancer in 2007, I remember how sweet the entire staff was and how well Dr. Webber explained our options. Getting breast cancer is unforgettable! I’m fine now. Thank you.

Laura D. Bentley

My best memory of KCBC is that of meeting Dr. Webber and his nurse, Lora. When my husband and I entered his exam room, we saw a frame with a cross stitched saying, “God is bigger than any problem I have.” My husband is a minister. When we knew that Dr. Webber was a man of faith, we felt a peace and calm about the road that we would have to travel. When a surgeon knows that his talent and skills come from God, his confidence and faith in God sees him through. My husband and I have been treated compassionately every step of the way! My husband I and I will celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary in December. We are so thankful for KCBC and its 35 year anniversary!

Crystal Smith

Prior to becoming a patient I had three breast surgeries for a chronic infection. It has been a hard 9 years off and on with it. I was referred to KCBC. I was terrified to have to have another surgery. They were able to take care of me and for two years have prevented another surgery! The staff has been amazing. The doctors are very knowledgeable about my condition. I had to call when they were closed at Christmas time and talk with the doctor after hours. Dr. Webber treated me like I was one of his friends calling! Made me feel at ease and took care of my problem.

Kimberly Morgan

My first memory of KCBC was when at 44 I was diagnosed with breast cancer. I was terrified.

Dr. Webber put my mind at ease and took the time to carefully explain what type of cancer I had and how he was going to treat it. He was confident and he made me really believe that I would be alright. He asked me if he could pray with me and I knew right then that KCBC was the best place for me. This was my first impression and it was a positive experience at a very scary time in my life. I have continued to go to KCBC since my diagnosis and each time I feel welcomed and important. Thank you, KCBC for everything you have done for me and for what you do for women from East Tennessee and beyond.
