Multidisciplinary Approach to Cancer Care
Wake Forest Baptist focuses on using a multidisciplinary, multi-expert approach to obtain comprehensive care for patients with a wide range of colon, rectal and anal disorders. To ensure this, the colon and rectal surgeons work closely with gastroenterologists, radiologists, oncologists, wound ostomy care nurses and nutrition specialists.
Because of this multidisciplinary approach, the Wake Forest Baptist Comprehensive Cancer Center has been designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, one of only 41 in the country.
