Kayla Barnard, MD, is a board-certified and fellowship-trained breast surgeon at the Norman Regional Breast Surgery Clinic. She attended medical school at Creighton University and chose to pursue breast surgery because she said it provides the perfect balance of surgery and close patient relationships. Dr. Barnard said her patients can expect compassion, clarity and a collaborative partner who will work with the patient to determine the best treatment option for them.
"Breast cancer is not a one-size-fits-all diagnosis and neither is the treatment. Patients are understandably fearful and my goal is to provide compassion and clarity, which often decreases anxiety."
Her special interests include:
- Breast cancer
- Benign breast disease
- Multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer treatment
- Breast biopsy
- Breast conservation
- Mastectomy with and without reconstruction
- Oncoplastic breast surgery
In her free time, Dr. Barnard spends her time with her family and enjoys reading, outdoor activities and painting.
