Liver tumor program launched to ‘work in a fashion of teamwork’

Liver tumor program launched to ‘work in a fashion of teamwork’
November 17, 2017

The Perlmutter Cancer Center at NYU Langone Health launched a new liver tumor program, designed to provide multidisciplinary care for patients with primary and secondary liver and bile duct cancers, according to a press release.

“What we’ve seen in the past — because these are patients with tough problems and care depends on familiarity with these diseases — and what we don’t want to see is a patient bouncing around for 6 weeks, waiting on various studies and biopsies and things of that nature,” Theodore H. Welling, MD, from the director of the liver tumor program at Perlmutter Cancer Center, told Healio.com/Hepatology. “Our experts can get to a disease-management plan much more quickly and I think that saves a lot of angst for the patient.”
