Make No Small Plans: M. D. Anderson Cancer Center Endeavors to Make Cancer History
Date:5/8/2009

ch surgeons, chemotherapists, radiation therapists and others see the patient and decide upon treatment jointly. Known as multidisciplinary care, this team approach is widely accepted as a best practice for cancer and other diseases.
  • A team of M. D. Anderson diagnostic radiologists, led by Robert Egan, M.D., developed mammography technology and showed that mammography can detect breast cancer at early, highly curable stages.
  • Renilda Hilkemeyer, the director of nursing at M. D. Anderson from 1955 to 1978, revolutionized the specialty care of patients with cancer and is recognized as the pioneer of oncology nursing.
  • Eleanor Montague, M.D., was instrumental in showing that many women with breast cancer could be treated successfully without undergoing the once-routine radical mastectomy. Her milestone reports published in the 1970s and 1980s demonstrated that lumpectomy combined with radiation therapy could be as effective as radical mastectomy for certain breast patients.
  • M. D. Anderson neuro-oncologists and scientists discovered that 90 percent of people with glioblastoma multiforme, a deadly form of brain cancer, possess the MAC1 gene, a gene that has also been found in some kidney, breast and prostate cancers.
  • Waun Ki Hong, M.D. demonstrated for the first time that vitamin A analogues (retinoids) can reverse precancerous lesions in the mouth and prevent or delay the onset of cancer. This finding pioneered a new field of study known as chemoprevention.
  • In 2000, the Texas Legislature enabled M. D. Anderson to award baccalaureate degrees in cytotechnology, cytogenetic technology, medical dosimetry, molecular genetic technology, diagnostic imaging, histotechnology, clinical laboratory science and radiation therapy.
