Rectal Cancer Services
Given the complexity of rectal cancer management, decisions regarding individual treatment plans are best made collaboratively by a multidisciplinary team involving medical and radiation oncologists, radiologists and surgeons with rectal cancer expertise. It is also preferable for patients with potentially resectable cancer to be evaluated by a colorectal surgeon prior to initiating treatment. At UW Health, we have a multidisciplinary team of physicians that meets weekly to discuss treatment planning for all patients with rectal cancer.
