As part of our multidisciplinary expert care, we hold Tumor Board meetings each week to discuss the treatment of individual cancer patients entering our programs. Specialists from every area of care — body, mind and spirit — are present to discuss the details of patient care.
As appropriate to the specific type of cancer, those in attendance can include: surgical oncologists, general surgeons, neurosurgeons, gynecologic oncologists, thoracic surgeons, medical oncologists, pulmonary medicine specialists, radiation oncologists, nutritionists, nurses, pathologists, radiologists, urologists, ENT physicians and cancer resource specialists.
It is the interaction between these specialists that allows us to make personalized treatment plans for each patient. Our multidisciplinary approach offers highly comprehensive, coordinated cancer care for even the most complex cancers.
To take part in Tumor Board through a primary care physician referral, or a self-referral by calling 1-877-LACKS-MI or 616-685-LACK(S).
