The UK Markey Cancer Center is home to the region’s first multidisciplinary clinic dedicated to neuroendocrine tumors.
Because their overall incidence is rare, these tumors present some unique diagnostic and therapeutic challenges. At the Neuroendocrine Multidisciplinary Clinic, treatment planning begins with the patient’s first visit. Specialists from medical, surgical and radiation oncology review cases with pathologists and diagnostic radiologists. Patients are treated with a coordinated comprehensive care approach, which includes communication with the primary care team and referring physicians.
The team-based approach, stressing individualized care, patient education and research, is expected to result in better care for patients, improving both their prognosis and their quality of life.
