New breast cancer patients are prospectively reviewed at our multidisciplinary breast conference where surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, fellowship trained breast radiologists, pathologists, genetic counselors, nurse navigators and clinical trials coordinators gather weekly to provide an evidence-based, consensus opinion from the team to develop an individualized plan of care specific to each patient's diagnosis and situation. Our onsite partners in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offer a full-range of breast reconstruction options including both implant- and flap-based, performed by fellowship trained, board-certified plastic surgeons.
This new faculty physician will work exclusively at the main academic medical center. This program has an established referral base with potential for further growth.
