NorthShore Kellogg Cancer Center’s multidisciplinary approach provides optimal cancer treatment for each of our patients. To receive the best care possible, we bring together specialists, each with expertise in specific cancers, as well as other clinical staff involved in your treatment, and put their collective knowledge, skills and experience to work for you. Every week, these multispecialty teams meet in a multidisciplinary conference to discuss each patient’s case in detail and to design a personalized cancer treatment plan.
Your team may include your medical oncologist, surgeon, radiation oncologist, nurse, genetics counselor, pathologist, nutritionist, interventional radiologist, and researchers focused on you. This meeting of the minds provides each patient with a personalized cancer care plan designed for the most successful outcome.
Our approach emphasizes open communication, collaborating with each other personally and through our award winning Electronic Medical Records system.
