(From the October 2015 Issue of MedStat)
The Neuro-Oncology Clinic focuses on the needs of children, adolescents and young adults who have been diagnosed with any pediatric cancer of the central nervous system (brain or spinal cord). The multi-disciplinary team, led by Jonathan Finlay, MB, ChB, FRCP, includes faculty from Hematology & Oncology, Neurosurgery, led by Jeffrey Leonard, MD, Radiology, Pathology and a Neuro-Oncology Program Social Worker, Clinical Psychologist, Rehabilitation Medicine Specialist and certified Genetics Counselor.
Every week this team reviews the charts of the patients scheduled to be seen in clinic, and jointly agree on the patient’s care plan. This comprehensive approach increases the quality of care for patients, reduces their appointments and increases patient satisfaction.
