Revlon/UCLA Breast Center
Established in 1992, the mission of the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center is to bring the most comprehensive and compassionate care to our patients and to develop future medicine to end the suffering of women with breast cancer. Through its vision and dedication, the Center leads the field of total breast care, and is committed to serving patients from all corners of the world.
The Revlon/UCLA Breast Center offers four clinical programs to serve women:
- Diagnostic Clinic
- Multidisciplinary Program
- Followup Program
- High-Risk Program
Each clinical program is designed to meet the needs of women with different problems, and includes a team of experts whose goal is to provide the most comprehensive and compassionate care possible. The Center also offers a weekly surgical education class to empower women.
In addition to the Division of Hematology/Oncology and the Revlon/UCLA Breast Center, UCLA has opened several community practices to allow easier access to comprehensive cancer care services and investigative clinical trials.
Clinical trials are carefully controlled research studies in which cancer patients help doctors and scientists find ways to improve health and cancer care, and to make sure the treatments are safe and effective. Each study is designed to address and answer specific scientific questions and to find better ways to prevent, diagnose or treat cancer. A clinical trial is one of the final stages resulting from the research conducted during intensive and lengthy laboratory studies.
