The multidisciplinary breast tumor board is a weekly meeting of breast surgeons, plastic surgeons, radiologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists and allied health professionals who specialize in breast care to discuss the cases of all breast cancer patients who will be treated in the Froedtert and Medical College Breast Cancer Center. The purpose of these discussions is to ensure quality care for each patient and discuss recent changes in literature and discuss their effect on management of breast cancer patients. We also discuss clinical trials that are currently open, their rationale, and patient eligibility for participation on those trials.
