Each of our physician meets with the patient and collaborates to devise a personalized plan of action based on the consultations and the patient’s imaging, pathology, and medical history. Learn more about our Multidisciplinary Clinic and how this approach helps to expedite the time between receiving a diagnosis and taking action towards a personalized treatment plan.
A Multidisciplinary Approach to Breast Cancer Care
“We provide a multidisciplinary approach to treat breast cancer. I never want a patient to feel rushed when it comes to their cancer. I think they see this and that gives them hope and courage to fight this battle,” said Trevan Fischer, MD, Assistant Professor of Surgical Oncology at Saint John’s Cancer Institute.
If you require treatment for breast cancer, rest assured the experts at the Margie Petersen Breast Center have you covered. Our team focuses on caring for the whole person: mind, body, and spirit. Innovative and compassionate care, along with an array of support services such as nurse navigators and dietitians, support your emotional wellbeing to complement your medical treatment. We have a unique partnership with the Saint John’s Cancer Institute which combines clinical excellence with novel translational research to provide excellent patient care.
“Oncoplastic surgery combines cancer surgery with plastic surgery techniques. There is nothing more gratifying than for patients to tell me I feel like I look better after cancer than I did before,” said Janie Grumley, M.D., Breast Surgical Oncologist, and Director of the Comprehensive Breast Program at the Margie Petersen Breast Center.
