Caring For Our Patients
A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Fortunately, precision medicine is one of the most promising fields in our collective fight against cancer and other life-threatening diseases and offers hope for even the most difficult cases. At the Englander Institute, our mission is to identify targeted therapeutic approaches for each patient. Just as each type of cancer is unique, each patient will respond uniquely to their treatment. Precision medicine is about finding the right treatment, for the right patient, at the right time, to deliver the best results.
The process begins with a referral from one of our clinicians. Our experts then use the latest genetic sequencing tools and technology to determine the genetic drivers of a patient’s cancer. The test results and patient’s medical history are reviewed by a Precision Medicine Tumor Board consisting of medical oncologists, pathologists, computational biologists and others to develop a treatment plan tailored to each patient. The plan is then shared with the clinician who discusses the results with the patient.
