Taking the team approach to breast cancer
The Team Approach to breast cancer care brings together a multidisciplinary group of key medical professionals:
- Plastic surgeon
- Breast surgeon
- Medical oncologist
The team works together from the onset of a woman’s breast cancer diagnosis to develop and implement a treatment plan tailored for each patient. When the Team Approach is implemented at the time of diagnosis through treatment and recovery, it can result in significantly improved patient outcomes and quality of life.
