Multidisciplinary Team Approach

Oncology, radiology, nutrition, physical therapy, psychology, pathology and pharmacy – all meet as one team to create YOUR PATH to survive cancer.

When you or a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer - you want a team of experts working together to create the best treatment plan for you. At Methodist Estabrook Cancer Center, that team is formed to create an individual treatment plan for you and your cancer.

Your cancer team

When you receive your diagnosis, our multidisciplinary cancer team brings together experts from multiple medical fields and support services to create the best treatment plan for you and your situation.  Depending on your case, your multidisciplinary team may include:

  • Behavioral health professionals
  • Chaplains
  • Dietitians
  • Medical oncologists
  • Oncology nurse navigators
  • Pathologists
  • Physical therapists
  • Radiation oncologists
  • Radiologists
  • Research nurses
  • Social workers
  • Surgical oncologists

Our multidisciplinary team of experts participates in an in-depth exploration of each patient’s case.  These team meetings, also called a tumor conference, are held throughout the month for specific topics such as breast, gastrointestinal tumors, melanoma and sarcoma. 

"We work together to weigh all the test results and options and our team develops an individualized treatment plan for you."
