Our Multi-Disciplinary Approach to Cancer Care
Medical collaboration is integral in the treatment of cancer. At Riverview, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other specialists work together to provide the best treatment plan for cancer patients. While many of these physicians are in private practice, through a number of cancer conferences and clinical meetings, they come together to discuss the best approach to their patient’s
A Team of Experts
Our treatment team is comprised of physicians hailing from prestigious medical schools and residency programs, such as Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, Stanford University, Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center, Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and University of California at San Francisco. Licensed and board-certified radiation therapists, Magnet-recognized nurses, and other support staff complete the team and work together to meet each patient’s individual needs.
Multi-disciplinary teams of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgeons, pathologists, nurses, and other clinicians meet regularly to review prospective and retrospective cases to consult on the optimal treatment strategy for patients. Conferences include those focused on specific sites, such as breast cancer and lung cancer, as well as a general cancer conference.
The Booker Cancer Center at Riverview offers the latest treatment options and comprehensive treatment programs for different types of cancer including:
- Brain and Spinal Tumors
- Head and Neck
Bringing It All Together
Perhaps the biggest benefit for physicians and their patients, is our ability to bring all of the components of cancer care together – from diagnosis to treatment to recovery – at one Center focused solely on beating cancer.
