Interdisciplinary Effort

Tumor Team

The highly trained physicians at the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center take a patient-centered approach to care. Because no two individuals respond in the same way to any treatment, the multidisciplinary team of specialists provides highly individualized diagnostics and treatment plans. The ultimate goal is to provide the optimal patient experience. Collaborators from many areas are focused on leading the way in research breakthroughs.

Weekly, experts from many different departments will gather to discuss specific cases during a tumor board meeting. During this meeting, doctors and scientists will discuss best treatment options, new techniques and surgical interventions and possible inclusion into research studies in which progressive treatments can be tried.
