Gastric cancer incidence is decreasing in the UK, but it is still a common and difficult disease to treat. A dedicated team of specialists is required to deliver high quality care. The MDT is essential to this process.
MDT (Multi-disciplinary Team Meeting)
The Multidisciplinary Team Meeting (MDT) provides an opportunity for Consultants to discuss complex cases. All cases of oesophageal or gastric cancer are discussed by the MDT to ensure the correct treatment is given. The MDT is attended by specialists from a number of different areas;
- Medical Oncology Specialists
- Clinical Oncology Specialists
- Radiology Specialists (including CT and PET)
- Surgical Specialists
- Specialist Nurse
- Genetics Specialists
We also provide a second opinion service. This can be arranged through my secretary or contacting London Bridge Hospital.
