Our approach to cancer care
Almost every oncology case involves specialists from multiple fields. From Surgeons to Pathologists, Radiologists to Radiation Oncologists, Plastic Surgeons to Medical Oncologists, all gather at Memorial's Multidisciplinary Cancer Forums several times each week. Newly diagnosed or difficult cases are presented by the patient's physician. All specialists discuss each case and develop a treatment plan together.
