Linda Smith, Breast Surgeon at X-Ray Associates of New Mexico, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Doctors for dedication, achievements, and leadership in surgical treatment of breast disorders.
Desiring to be a physician since childhood, Dr. Smith began studying a pre-medical curriculum in high school and qualified for a six-year medical program at the Northwestern University College of Medicine in Chicago, earning a Medical Doctor in 1978. She then completed an internship with the University of California, Davis in 1979 and served a five-year residency in general surgery at Northwestern University and Columbus Hospital in Chicago from 1979 to 1983 and a fellowship in burn and trauma with the University of New Mexico Albuquerque from 1983 to 1984.
Upon entering private practice in New Mexico in 1984, Dr. Smith began her career as a general surgeon but soon focused on breast surgery and in in 1990 elected to sub-specialize in the treatment of breast disorders, in which she currently provides superior care with X-Ray Associates of New Mexico. She is board certified by the American Board of Surgery and the American Society of Breast Surgeons and Breast Ultrasound. Considered as the premier surgeon in the region for breast care, she treats cancers, hereditary issues, breast cancers, infections and nursing problems.
After initially training to treat burns and traumas, Dr. Smith’s practice was flooded with women who were looking for someone who would take care of them, listen to them, and change the face of breast care. She maintains that her career-best achievement has been the number of women’s lives her practice has saved by getting them to top providers in a timely manner. Having just applied for a master’s program in personalized medicine at the University of Wisconsin, she sees herself going into this direction in the coming years.
