The centerpiece of the Stanford Cancer Center is the tumor boards and
multidisciplinary clinics where specialists from Surgery, Medical
Oncology, Radiation Oncology, Radiology, and Pathology evaluate and
discuss patients for whom a multispecialty approach is being
considered. The multidisciplinary group will collectively design the
best course of action for each patient.
This video explains how Stanford doctors use the genetics of individual tumors to design a personalized treatment for best results and to guide development of new treatments.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
