Over the past few decades, cancer care is increasingly being delivered within a multi-specialty team environment, involving a group of highly skilled professionals that specialize in specific types of cancer. At Fox Chase, we believe that this approach to cancer treatment and care is beneficial to our patients. A multi-disciplinary team of physicians and health care professionals make rounds together and meet on a weekly basis to discuss each patient's case to ensure the best treatment possible.
Our expert doctors-surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, pathologists and radiologists-work closely to correctly diagnose your cancer and educate you about your treatment options. In addition to treating your cancer, Fox Chase has other specialists who manage the needs of patients with additional health concerns.
Breast Evaluation Center
This approach has been extremely successful for newly diagnosed breast cancer patients in our Breast Evaluation Center (BEC). For example, during a 1-day visit to the BEC, your entire team of expert specialists can include a surgeon, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist, pathologist, radiologist and social worker; who together develop a comprehensive treatment plan tailored especially for you.
