The Uro-Oncology Tumor Board
The Urology Group is committed to advancing our knowledge of tumor conditions and treatment and we know that doing so requires looking beyond the expertise of our own practice. So in 2011, several of our physicians and the experts at Oncology Hematology Consultants in Cincinnati decided to hold regular meetings to assemble the best medical minds in the region to discuss the care of complex cancer of the genitourinary tract. These monthly meetings are multidisciplinary, involving medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, urologists and our pathologist. During the meetings we discuss and examine difficult cancer cases and review the histology slides.
Such boards, which are usually found only in hospitals or large healthcare organizations, are unique for a group of private-practice physicians. It speaks to our commitment to ensure the best-quality care, fostered through shared thoughts and education.
