Dr. Abraham’s Comprehensive Breast Care
Dr. Dana Abraham, a breast surgical oncologist, knows that awareness and education are the first steps in defeating breast cancer. That’s why she is dedicated to the education of her patients in self-examination and individual risk profiles.
While she is an expert in breast cancer, Dr. Abraham’s training covers all aspects of breast health, including lactation and fibrocystic changes. She also performs cosmetic breast surgeries, including lifts and reductions.
Dr. Abraham sees patients with any breast-related problems, performing everything from imaging studies to lumpectomies to mastectomies. Because she knows breast procedures—including diagnostic procedures such as biopsies—can be frightening and stressful, she strives to find the most conservative approach appropriate for her patients’ needs. Dr. Abraham often prefers minimally invasive solutions to outright surgery, but she adjusts treatment according to what’s best for each patient’s specific situation.
Dr. Abraham has devoted most of her life to breast care. After receiving her medical degree from the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences in 1989, she completed a Breast Fellowship at Baylor University Medical Center in Dallas. She then returned to Little Rock in 1995 to open a private breast surgical oncology practice.
In 2007, she founded the Abraham Breast Clinic to accomplish her goal of providing compassionate care in a comfortable setting. She takes pride in her bedside manner and her ability to connect with her patients and their families, putting them at ease as they get the quality breast care they need.
In the fall of 2018, Dr. Abraham was appointed to the Advisory Board of the Arkansas Affiliate of the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation. This three-year role—which is awarded to recognized breast health experts—provides insight, scientific direction, and expertise to the board.
“I am honored to have been selected. Working in the field of surgical oncology, I have dedicated most of my professional life to serving patients battling breast cancer. Now, I get to expand those efforts and do even more to fight this disease. Part of my role will be to assist with the technical aspects of communicating developments in breast cancer research, treatments, and patient needs.”
