Early Breast Cancer: Evolving Strategies in Multidisciplinary and Personalized Care
Breast cancer is not one disease, but many distinct subtypes affecting women of all ages, socioeconomic, cultural, and ethnic backgrounds. Thus, optimal care requires that therapy be tailored to the individual patient as well as to the specifics of her particular breast cancer. This lecture will discuss how the diagnosis and management of early breast cancer have evolved over recent years and will focus on the importance of a multidisciplinary, personalized approach in determining the best treatment strategy. Particular emphasis will be placed on how the treatment plan can be formulated specifically for the individual patient and integrated across medical specialties. Physicians from breast surgery, plastic surgery, medical oncology, radiation oncology, breast radiology and breast pathology will discuss advances in the diagnosis and treatment of early breast cancer in the context of their subspecialties.
Panelists: Nova Foster M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Surgery, Sara Hurvitz, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor Hematology/Oncology, Susan McCloskey, M.D., M.S.H.S., Assistant Professor Radiation Oncology, Anne C. Hoyt, M.D., Professor Radiological Science, Nicole Dawson, M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Pathology and Charles Tseng, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor Plastics and Reconstructive Surgery.
