Cancer Types & Markey's Specialty Treatment Teams
The complexity of cancer involves many different branches of medicine. The UK Markey Cancer Center has developed a variety of specialized multidisciplinary teams to evaluate and treat the disease, which means that physicians and nurses from multiple specialties work together with each patient to develop the best treatment plan for their particular circumstances.
More than 100 different types of cancer exist, and each type of cancer must be treated differently at different stages of disease. The Markey Cancer Center's expert teams are committed to developing new and more advanced ways to fight cancer and utilizing breakthrough technology to maintain and improve patients' quality of life.
This approach gives the patient and family a coordinated "second opinion," yields a variety of options for a comprehensive treatment plan, and moves patients into active treatment more quickly.
