      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Holmes' Care Philosophy

      I believe that most women diagnosed with breast cancer will go on to live long and fulfilling lives. My philosophy as a breast surgeon is to offer women surgical and non-surgical solutions for the treatment of breast cancer that are designed to reduce the long term side effects of breast cancer treatment while enhancing patient quality of life. Examples of these solutions include intraoperative radiotherapy (breast radiation given as a single treatment during surgery after lumpectomy), minimally invasive breast surgery (breast surgery designed to reduce scars), and axillary reverse mapping (lymph node surgery designed to prevent lymphedema or arm swelling). Dennis Holmes is the National Co-Chair of The TARGIT U.S. Intraoperative Radiotherapy Patient Registry, among the first surgeon in the U.S. to perform Minimally Invasive Breast Surgery, and a pioneer in surgical techniques to reduce the risk of lymphedema.
