Meet Dr. Arteaga
World renowned breast cancer specialist and investigator
As one of the country’s leading physician scientists in the treatment and research of breast cancer, and with almost three decades of clinical experience, Carlos L. Arteaga, M.D., likes to talk about the good news he has for his patients.
“The treatment of breast cancer has evolved dramatically over the last 30 years,” he says. “As cancer care has become increasingly sophisticated, the mortality for breast cancer has been increasingly in decline.”
Dr. Arteaga joined UT Southwestern in 2017 to take the helm as Director of the Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center and Associate Dean of Oncology Programs. He sees his position as the best way to continue his work in the remaking of cancer from a death sentence to a fallible foe. Learn more about Dr. Arteaga.
