Cancer can be complex, but that doesn't mean your care team should be. The Stephenson Cancer Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to patient-care. By bringing together specialists from several fields, we are able to form a diverse treatment team. Through this collaborative approach, our cancer experts share their diverse knowledge, skills, and experiences to develop the most comprehensive treatment plan for our patients. The result is precision medicine, which is a highly-individualized treatment plan for each patient depending on their unique diagnosis and health characteristics.

Our multidisciplinary teams meet regularly as a group to evaluate patient profiles, review and discuss treatment plans, examine newly developed therapies that could be beneficial to patients, and enroll patients in the latest clinical trials.
