Patients and referring physicians who choose the University of Minnesota Physicians benefit from the collaboration of an interdisciplinary team of doctors and nurses who focus on treating a single disease. Our team meets regularly to discuss each patient's treatment, routinely seeking the advice and opinions of our experts in gynecologic pathology and radiation oncology.
