The Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute provides a number of services and opportunities for physicians and healthcare professionals.
These services are designed to share the medical knowledge and multidisciplinary expertise of the members of the institute's team of specialists and experts.
This assures that patients get the most from their treatment at Cedars-Sinai and the best possible treatment for the cancers they have.
To help ensure that Cedars-Sinai provides the best possible care to our patients, we conduct 11 tumor boards/cancer conferences each month.
These conferences allow specialists from varying fields to discuss cancer management options, including pretreatment evaluation, staging, treatment strategy and rehabilitation.
The cases reviewed represent all major cancer sites and 10 percent of all new cases seen at Cedars-Sinai, and are presented at a time when these discussions can best influence the patient's treatment.
