Your Cancer Care Team
The diagnosis and treatment of cancer requires a team of physicians from a variety of specialties. Through expert oncologists and state-of-the-art technology at Smilow Cancer Hospital, each patient receives a personalized treatment plan based on their individual cancer diagnosis.
Smilow Cancer Hospital has 13 multidisciplinary cancer programs dedicated to caring for each patient’s unique diagnosis. Each program meets to discuss every patient's care, related diagnostic findings, and treatment strategies, resulting in the development of a comprehensive treatment plan for every patient that can include surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, a combination of treatments, or conservative monitoring. As part of Smilow Cancer Hospital Oncology Medical Home care delivery model, we focus on providing better access to cancer care for our patients by a physician-led care team focused on providing the right care at the right time and in the right place.
In addition to skilled physicians, your team consists of highly trained nurses, patient care coordinators, research nurses, dietitians, social workers, physical therapists, clergy, and a host of support staff.
