Multidisciplinary Care

For optimal treatment and outcome, each child’s treatment planning is done in a multi-disciplinary setting, where doctors from all needed specialties are involved in discussing the case, reviewing laboratory and imaging findings streamlined through the Tumor Board that aims to provide a patient-specific plan for treatment. Such treatments typically include one or a combination of the following: chemotherapy, surgery, radiation therapy, and targeted treatment, based on the most recent medical evidence and standards of care.
This team includes, in addition to the pediatric oncologists, a core group of AUBMC pathologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pediatric oncologic surgeons, pediatric orthopedic surgeons, pediatric neurosurgeons, pediatric ophthalmologists and ocular oncology surgeons, along with other specialists as deemed necessary.
The involvement of a multidisciplinary team since the beginning of the patient’s journey ensures that the child will receive the best-tailored treatment taking into consideration all available modalities of therapy. When needed, the team also utilizes the opinions of experts from St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in TN, USA, and other experts around the world, especially for rare cases that may require special considerations.
