Precision Healthcare Specialists adds breast cancer surgeon Dr. Lea Blackwell

Dr. Lea Blackwell has joined Precision Health Care Specialists, a Southwest Florida Multispecialty Physician Group. She is a fellowship trained breast surgeon that dedicates her practice to the surgical management of breast disease. She has been practicing in the Lee County community since 2008 and focuses on a multidisciplinary approach to management of breast cancer.

Blackwell, an accomplished breast cancer specialist, monitors high-risk patients for evidence of breast disease while providing effective, appropriate treatments to those diagnosed with breast cancer.

A member of the American College of Surgeons, Society of Surgical Oncology, American Society of Breast Surgeons and American Society for Clinical Oncology, Blackwell integrates a multidisciplinary approach to breast cancer care by collaborating with a team of experienced physicians and health care professionals.

With a goal of helping patients feel comfortable during and after treatment, Blackwell invented the “Blackwell Bra,” a custom-designed bra offering superior comfort for women recovering from mastectomies, lumpectomies, augmentations, reductions, and heart or lung surgery. Blackwell received five patents for the “Blackwell Bra.”

Blackwell earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida and a Doctor of Medicine (M.D.) degree from the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport. She completed general surgery training at the LSU School of Medicine in New Orleans and a breast surgical oncology fellowship at Washington Hospital Center.

Blackwell will treat patients at Precision Healthcare Specialists’ office, 13691 Metro Parkway, Suite 300, in Fort Myers. For more information, please visit
