All Aboard! Our New Christmas Tradition

Our hospital lobby has a new addition for the Christmas season. Dr. Richard Webb of Lexington Surgical Associates, a Lexington Medical Center physician practice, has graciously allowed us to display his beautiful model train collection during the holiday season.

Dr. Webb has been collecting the pieces since childhood. The set has already garnered a lot of attention and accolades from hospital staff and community members. We hope it’s the beginning of a holiday tradition for many years to come.

Learn all about Dr. Webb’s love for these trains in the video below.

And Merry Christmas!

Understanding Breast Cancer Surgery

Breast cancer is the most commonly diagnosed type of cancer at Lexington Medical Center. In fact, statistics show 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime.

Thankfully, researchers and clinicians have learned a lot about the best ways to treat breast cancer and save lives. That includes knowing more about the best surgery methods. A generation ago, every woman with breast cancer received a double mastectomy. Today, surgeons have realized that less may be more – and it’s possible in some cases to perform a lumpectomy or use other treatment methods instead of a mastectomy.

Each month, WLTX hosts a segment called “Buddy Call.” It’s designed for women to remember to call a friend and remind her to perform a monthly self-breast exam. They also feature a patient or doctor. This month, they came to visit Dr. Richard Webb of Lexington Surgical Associates.

Celebrating its 28th anniversary this year, Lexington Medical Center’s cancer program is affiliated with Duke Health to provide state-of-the-art cancer care for cancer patients in our community. The hospital has treated more 5,000 women in the last 15 years, with a breast program accredited by the National Accreditation Program for Breast Centers (NAPBC) and the American College of Radiology (ACR). Lexington Medical Center’s cancer program also has accreditation with commendation by the American College of Surgeons Commission on Cancer.
