At Banner MD Anderson Cancer Center, patients experience customized, comprehensive and compassionate care with a team of experts who work together to develop a treatment plan based on each patient’s unique needs. Together, they travel hand in hand with our patients through the cancer journey, supporting their unique medical and personal needs every step of the way.
Our physicians have specialized education, training and experience in cancer care and research. They have a disease-specific focus for the medical, surgical, and radiation management of the cancer patient, so they can ensure patients receive treatment from doctors who are experts in their fields. For example, patients with breast cancer are treated by physicians who care for cancers of the breast, and those with colon cancer are treated by physicians who specialize in the care of gastrointestinal cancers. They also work directly with leading oncologists at MD Anderson, and have access to the same standards of care used at the Houston center.
