The most successful breast cancer treatment is based on the expertise of many types of cancer specialists:
- Diagnostic radiologists, pathologists, advanced-care practitioners and genetic counselors provide essential information used to help determine a patient’s prognosis and course of treatment.
- Surgeons, radiation oncologists and medical oncologists are the primary treating physicians. They work together with other team members to develop a treatment plan.
- Onco-physiatrists, onco-psychologists, palliative care providers, naturopathic providers and nutritionists help with the side effects of treatment through pain management, physical fitness and rehabilitation, mental and spiritual well-being, natural medicine and nutrition.
At the Swedish Cancer Institute, we create a team of cancer providers for each patient. Our goal is personalized care, from diagnosis through recovery, for the best outcome possible.
