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”!)
