Dr. Robert Elliott’s dream
began, not as you might think. It was not born of fond
thoughts of what he wanted for his future…of pleasant
days ahead to be looked forward to with eager anticipation.
His dream grew of anger. Anger at an “enemy”
that he saw attacking women every day—an enemy
that appeared to be winning on most fronts when Dr.
Elliott first encountered it. The “enemy”
was breast cancer.
As a general surgeon Dr. Elliott
came to wage a war against this enemy, not by design,
but by devine intervention, as he tells us in his book,
Breast Cancer, Anger at the Enemy.
Despite his desire to ignore the
inner voice that kept leading him toward a lifetime
of commitment to fighting breast cancer, Dr. Elliott
eventually gave in and followed his vocation.
As Dr. Elliott came to realize the
magnitude of loss and suffering inflicted each year
by breast cancer—sixty-five thousand women will
die this year from the disease and nearly one-hundred-seventy
thousand new cases will be diagnosed—he began
fighting his war against the disease by establishing
a clinic dedicated to Mastology, or the care and treatment
of the breast.
At his clinic in Baton Rouge, Louisiana,
the Elliott-Elliott-Head Breast Cancer Research and Treatment
Center, Dr. Elliott and his staff have created an environment
where a woman can receive complete breast care—from
routine examinations, to diagnostic testing, surgery,
follow-up therapies and post-operative care. Each woman
is treated by a team of health care professionals who
know and understand her case and prescribe an individualized
plan of care based on her needs and the unique characteristics
of her disease. At the EEH Center, research has played
a pivotal role in the advancements Dr. Elliott and his
staff have made toward treatment of breast cancer. Over
twenty years of intense research have resulted in a
number of breakthroughs including a patented vaccine
for breast cancer and other advances that you can learn
more about on this website.
Dr. Elliott’s dream to provide
the most thorough and compassionate breast care possible
has been realized, however his dream to make breast
cancer a thing of the past is just beginning. He will
not be satisfied until he and other dedicated physicians
and research scientists have found the key to curing
and preventing breast cancer.
