MEET DR. TERRE MCGLOTHIN

Dr. Terre Quinn McGlothin is a native of St. Louis, MO. She attended Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology. After graduating with honors, she attended Meharry Medical College in Nashville Tennessee.

While at Meharry, she was inducted into the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society and graduated in 1988 with honors.

Her general surgery training was done at the University of Louisville in Kentucky where she was the first African American female trainee at the program.During her tenure at Louisville, she had the opportunity to do bench research which resulted in a first authorship in a peer reviewed journal. It was also where she developed a special interest in diseases of the breast.

She completed a Breast Surgical Oncology fellowship at Baylor University Dallas- the first breast-only fellowship in the country – in 1995 and she has practiced in the Dallas area for 23 years.

During her time in private practice, she has had active participation in clinical trials and registries that have produced key data regarding the accuracy and utility of sentinel node biopsy for breast cancer patients and the safety of partial breast radiation for lumpectomy patients. She is listed as a contributing surgeon on multiple articles involving the sentinel node registry – one of the single most important innovations in the management of breast cancer in the last 30 years.

Dr. McGlothin is a board-certified general surgeon with a specialty in Breast Surgical Oncology, and her practice is focused solely on diseases of the breast.
