Multidisciplinary Breast Cancer Clinic

This clinic is dedicated to all patients referred to any of the two facility-based Breast Centers of Excellence with a new diagnosis of breast cancer through any source within or outside the TTUHSC system. Specialists provide a detailed evaluation of the patient, imaging studies and pathology. A detailed multidisciplinary treatment is planned for individualized tailored approach. These cases are discussed in the tumor board with review of NCCN guidelines. A comprehensive cutting edge care incorporating surgery, systemic treatment, radiation therapy, reconstructive surgery and psycho-oncology is provided.

Multidisciplinary breast cancer tumor board is held every week at both campuses (the Amarillo campus present the cases at the Harrington Cancer Center where the adjuvant therapy services are referred – HCC is a NAPBC accredited facility). The Center targets to present 90% of newly diagnosed breast cancers prospectively. The patients are evaluated at the multidisciplinary clinic immediately after the conference. Many cases are discussed at the tumor board multiple times as new information emerges to maximize the opportunity for personalized care in the current era of genomic evaluation and new clinical trials available to these patients. The multidisciplinary team also discusses and offers banking of cancer tissue to all patients for our locally managed comprehensive tumor bank managed by the South Plains Oncology Consortium.
