Walid Amine Abou-Jaoude, MD, General Surgery, Lexington Surgical Specialists:
We have a breast care program at Baptist Health Lexington, and our goal is to provide our patients with the highest quality of care that’s available. In order to do that, we have a comprehensive program that we have developed. In this program, we have a team of dedicated health professionals from different specialties and different disciplines. So really, we have a comprehensive program, and when we see the patient, we want to make sure we all work together to make sure we can provide that patient with the best care that we have available at the time.
KaraBeth Moore, MD, Breast Surgery, Lexington Surgical Specialists:
I think our multidisciplinary team at Baptist does an excellent job of putting the patient kind of in the center of a circle. We have of all of our specialists. For each patient, we talk about all the specifics of their pathology, their radiology, and we come up with a plan for each patient that will optimize their outcome. We work really well together: the breast radiologist, the geneticist, the medical oncologist, the radiation oncologist, and once again, the nurse navigators.
The goal of breast cancer care is to make sure that patients feel that they made the best decision with what they had. The ultimate goal is certainly that we have no residual cancer once we have completed their treatment, that we continue to follow them, and they continue to thrive and do well.
