Telling Secrets

UTSW’s community clinics will make our world-renowned expertise more convenient and accessible to you."

UT Southwestern Medical Center has occasionally been described as the “best kept secret in Dallas.” To be sure, we’re well known in the medical community as one of the nation’s top academic medical centers, but we’re perhaps not so well known in your neighborhood.

That’s about to change.

In October, UT Southwestern opened the first of what we hope will be several community clinics in the Metroplex, which will make our world-renowned expertise more convenient and accessible to you. Our first clinic serves the Richardson/Plano area, and we have a second one planned for the Park Cities. Even though UTSW has been in the Metroplex for nearly 70 years, we’re excited to be your new neighbor. You can read about our new Clinical Centers.

Making you aware of information that can improve your health is also the theme of our cover story. Barbara Eshelbrenner was doing just fine, medically speaking, until what seemed like unextraordinary symptoms indicated a serious medical condition — ovarian cancer. Fortunately, a UT Southwestern physician was able to restore Barbara to good health, but for many women across the country who discover the disease too late, the outcomes are not so favorable. Read Barbara’s story and learn what you should know.

You may also be interested in knowing about a leading-edge procedure that might help you avoid a hysterectomy if you have uterine fibroids.

One of our physicians will tell you all about it in our “3 Questions” segment.

When it comes to your health, it’s better to know more. At UT Southwestern, we’re happy to let you in on that secret.
