Team Approach to Treatment
Every case of cancer is unique, and every patient needs individualized care to ensure the best possible outcome. At UAMS, we believe our Team Treatment provides medical care that is second to none.
We take our team approach very seriously, with surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, medical and radiation oncologists, researchers and scientists working together to design specialized treatment options for every patient. UAMS also offers minimally invasive biopsies with same day diagnosis.
To form your personalized treatment plan, each specialist on our multidisciplinary team works to solve specific issues related to the cancer and its treatment. We also have specialists who work with patients to manage the side effects of cancer treatment. Our team will analyze all of the options available and, if needed, create new ones.
Since we are the only academic medical center in the state of Arkansas, we have the state-of-the-art equipment and technology to provide the best medical care. And our researchers and scientists are conducting research that translates into new procedures and treatment that are being used in hospitals around the country and the world.
Our compassionate team of nurses and physicians will listen to your concerns, evaluate your condition and make educated recommendations. Each patient is special to us and receives certain forms of treatment suited to their personal requirements. Whether it’s radiation therapy, immunotherapy, surgery, chemotherapy or a combination, our team of nurses and physicians will collaborate to decide on a course of treatment that best meets each patient’s needs.
