Rex Breast Multidisciplinary Care Program

One priority - you.

The Breast Multidisciplinary Care Program at Rex is here to take care of you. With multidisciplinary care, specialized physicians from different medical disciplines work together as a team to determine the best treatment plan for you. Other team members will assist you along the way to coordinate your care, manage the experience of a cancer diagnosis, understand the next steps, and allow you to focus on taking care of yourself throughout the process.

One phone call.

Starting with one phone call, we are with you every step of the way. Initially, a specialist will compile your medical records, set up all of your tests and schedule your multidisciplinary clinic appointment. Prior to your appointment, your case is reviewed by a team of specialized physicians, including a radiologist, pathologist, breast surgeon, medical oncologist, radiation oncologist and plastic surgeon (if needed). Your team will also include a patient care navigator who will help you navigate your steps through the program and provide support by helping you access important resources.

One team.

Throughout your care, your team will be focused on providing the best care options for you. Your team is made up of specialists from the Rex Breast Care Center, Rex Pathology Associates, Rex Surgical Specialists, Rex Hematology Oncology Associates and Rex/UNC Radiation Oncology, as well as specialists from local radiology and plastic surgery practices in the Triangle area.

Your team also includes a patient care navigator, patient coordinator, social worker, nutritionist and clinical trials nurse. As you meet other care providers throughout the course of your care, you will always have your core team to depend on for support. Your patient care navigator will serve as your point of contact to guide you through treatment and communicate with the rest of your team members.
