Portrait of Dr RIck Windle

Rick Windle, MD Surgeon

Born and raised in Lincoln, Nebraska, Dr. Windle and his family returned to Lincoln because of the people of Nebraska and the excellent schools. His education includes a degree in engineering achieved before medical school. He has been practicing in Lincoln since 1981. His wife, Susie, has a Masters in Social Work and consults with children and families through her practice, Kids Are For Keeps. They have two sons, Jesse and Bub. Family time is his #1 hobby. 

Dr. Windle has made use of his degree in mechanical engineering by embracing new technology that benefits our patients. This commitment to technology and its advantages for patients, started with the use of lasers in surgery. Dr. Windle has been a faculty member of Surgical Laser Technologies teaching other surgeons as well as presenting at the American Society of Laser Medicine and Surgery, of which he was a longstanding member. Additionally, with the advent of laparoscopic or band aid surgery, he has worked with the pioneers of this technology, traveling across the United States to collaboratively hone his own skills and teach others. Furthermore, he has served on the advisory board for Stryker Systems, a major developer and manufacturer of laparoscopic equipment. Looking to other new technologies, Dr. Windle is trained in the lap band weight loss operation and is now developing robotic surgical skills. He does single incision gallbladder removal. His expertise in breast surgery earned him a place on the faculty of Ethicon Endo Surgery, where he teaches other surgeons to use the ultrasonic scalpel. He was the first surgeon in Nebraska to certify in breast ultrasound and has re-certified this skill with American Society of Breast Surgeons. In addition, he is the founder and director of the Comprehensive Breast Care Center, which serves Lincoln and SE Nebraska. At the Comprehensive Breast Care Center, he introduced the ATEC system. The ATEC system is a very easy way to remove breast problems seen on ultrasound under local anesthesia in just minutes through a 1/8th inch incision.
