Jefferson Regional now has two general surgeons recognized for membership in the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS).

Michelle Eckert, MD, FACS, was recently inducted into membership in the society. Charles Mabry, MD, FACS, has been a member of the Society since 1999, being one of the first in Arkansas to be elected a member in the Society.

The ASBrS is the primary leadership organization for general surgeons who treat patients with breast disease, and is committed to continually improving the practice of breast surgery by serving as an advocate for surgeons who seek excellence in the care of breast patients.

In addition to Eckert and Mabry, there are only nine other general surgeons who have an active membership in the Society in Arkansas.
