Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center (SWSC), officially opened as a licensed ambulatory surgical center in October of 2009. Formerly the Fairmount Center, the clinic was founded in 1973 by Dr. Curtis Boyd. At that time, it was the first facility in Texas to provide high quality, low cost outpatient abortions.
The SWSC’s licensure, provided by the Texas Department of State Health Services allows us to provide abortion services through 21.6 weeks of pregnancy. We are the only abortion clinic in North Texas providing pregnancy termination care after 16 gestational weeks.

Curtis Boyd, M.D. has been providing pregnancy termination services in New Mexico since June 1972, shortly after abortion services were legalized in New Mexico. Dr. Boyd worked closely with Clergy Consultation for Problem Pregnancies, a national organization dedicated to providing safe abortions and he was one of the first physicians to provide high quality, low cost outpatient procedures in the southwest.
Southwestern Women’s Options has been providing abortions in all trimesters since 2010 when Dr. Susan Robinson (retired) and Dr. Shelley Sella, both Board Certified Ob/Gyns and former colleagues of Dr. George Tiller, joined our practice. Currently, Dr. Carmen Landau, Board Certified in Family Medicine and Dr. Sella, who specialize in third trimester abortion care, have welcomed our newest physician: Dr. Emily Cohen, Board Certified in Family Medicine.
