The Littleton Adventist Hospital Multidisciplinary Breast Clinic is designed to help patients understand the cancer care process and get patients into breast cancer treatment quickly. Traditionally it can take patients up to eight weeks to complete the first round of appointments before they even start treatment, the multidisciplinary clinic saves valuable time.
Our multidisciplinary breast clinic allows patients to meet one-on-one with each member of our breast cancer team. This includes meeting with a surgeon, nurse navigator, nutritionist, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and genetic counselor (if indicated). This allows the patient to leave the clinic with a proposed treatment plan, in hand, and the reassurance that coordinated, expert cancer care will be provided to them by our experienced breast cancer team.
