Tumor Board/Multidisciplinary Care and Research
At the UW Comprehensive Cancer Center in Madison, Wisconsin, our head and neck multidisciplinary team meets weekly at the head and neck cancer tumor board conference. At the weekly tumor board, these specialists present and review patient cases prior to treatment. Options regarding each patient's case are discussed to ensure the best possible care is provided.
The physicians that care for the head and neck cancer patients also have a research practice devoted to the development of new cancer treatments for head and neck cancers. Our center is only one of ten centers in the United States that is credentialed to conduct a specific head and neck clinical trial with a nationwide research group called the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group.
