Dennis R. Holmes, M.D., F.A.C.S.

DENNIS R. HOLMES, MD, F.A.C.S. is an internationally-renowned Breast Surgeon specializing in the surgical treatment of breast cancer and non-cancerous breast conditions.  As a noted leader in the treatment of breast cancer, Dr. Holmes is a sought-after authority on breast cancer surgery and breast radiotherapy and is regularly called upon to educate other breast cancer specialists on the optimal treatment of breast cancer.

LEADER.  Dr. Holmes serves as Board member of the American Society of Breast Diseases, Program Co-chairman of the National Consensus Conference on Women's Health, Program Committee Member of the National Consortium of Breast Centers, and Education Committee Member of the American Society of Breast Surgeons.

EXPERT.  Dr. Holmes is the Chief Breast Surgeon and Medical Director of the Los Angeles Center for Women’s Health, a state-of-the-art, comprehensive, multi-specialty women’s health center committed to improving women’s healthcare.  Prior to joining the Los Angeles Center for Women’s Health, Dr. Holmes held the positions of Chief Breast Cancer Surgeon, Breast Cancer Research Committee Co-Chair, and Breast Surgery Fellowship Program Director at the USC Kenneth Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center.

INNOVATOR. Dr. Holmes has gained international acclaim for his expertise and pioneering research in intraoperative radiotherapy, an innovative type of breast radiotherapy that replaces the usual 5-6 week course of daily breast radiotherapy normally given after lumpectomy, with a single, 30-minute radiotherapy treatment administered during surgery at the time of lumpectomy.  In addition to making breast radiotherapy more convenient, intraoperative radiotherapy reduces radiation side effects on the breast, skin, arm, heart and lung; prevents radiation-related fatigue; and helps women get back to their normal lifestyles much more quickly.
