At Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center, we surround you with experts who focus completely on cancer care. A handful of people make up the core of your care team. You will have a medical oncologist and a registered nurse who are experienced in caring for people with liver cancer. At some visits, you might see an advanced practice provider. A patient care coordinator schedules your visits.
If you need surgery or a liver transplant, we have experts in these treatments, like hepatobiliary surgeons and transplant surgeons.
Others join your team based on your personal needs. If you get a new health issue that might change your cancer treatment, we will call in the right experts. For example, if you have skin, heart or digestive concerns, we might call in a dermatologist, cardiologist or gastroenterologist. We have specialists based at Fred Hutch who know how to handle the issues that matter for people with cancer.
Supportive care providers are also here to help. You may see Fred Hutch registered dietitians, physical therapists, psychologists, social workers and others. All of us specialize in caring for people during and after cancer.
