Multidisciplinary approach is key to successful treatment of aggressive prostate cancer
Date:11/17/2010

PHILADELPHIA A research team from the National Cancer Institute (NCI) designated Kimmel Cancer Center (KCC) at Jefferson has concluded for the first time that a multidisciplinary clinic approach to aggressive prostate cancer can improve survival in patients.

In deciding on a treatment regimen, patients must be informed of the risks and benefits of each treatment. All specialists must provide patients with up-to-date information on the options and be aware of the different influences that surround these men during the decision-making process.

How It's Done at KCC

The clinic team works with patients and referring physicians to devise treatment plans that are tailored to the individual needs of each patient.
