A Multidisciplinary Team
The Lourdes Cancer Center features a holistic, multi-disciplinary approach to cancer care. That means all the specialists involved in a patient's care work together to treat the entire person-not just the disease. Board-certified physicians, together with oncology nurses and specialized allied health professionals, strive to offer high-quality medical, surgical and radiation therapy services. We believe this is the best way to make sure that the patient's medical, as well as emotional, spiritual and family needs, are met.
This approach has many benefits, including:
- A unified recommendation for treatment;
- Enhanced communication with the patient and family;
- More convenient, less time-consuming and stressful access to care;
- Coordination of services for prevention, education, diagnosis, acute intervention, emotional and spiritual support and home care.
