Aurora Offers You a Team of Diverse Cancer Specialists
Aurora Cancer Care has developed a unique musculoskeletal oncology program headquartered at Aurora St. Luke’s Medical Center in Milwaukee that takes a comprehensive team approach to your care. This multidisciplinary team is led by fellowship-trained Nick Webber, MD, an orthopedic oncology surgeon who has completed advanced fellowship training at the University of Utah/Huntsman Cancer Hospital–Sarcoma Advanced Research. He specializes in adult and pediatric bone and soft-tissue tumors, musculoskeletal oncology and metastatic bone disease.
In addition to Dr. Webber, the multidisciplinary team of experts includes radiologists, surgeons, pathologists, oncologists, plastic surgeons, a physical therapist and cancer nurse navigator. Your nurse navigator serves as your personal advocate throughout your treatment at Aurora, helping to coordinate your appointments, tests and procedures, and connect you and your family to resources you need and answer your questions. The multidisciplinary team gathers and collaborates once a week to discuss approximately five patients at each session. At this weekly conference, specialists:
- Analyze diagnostic tests and images
- Diagnose patient conditions
- Develop individualized treatment plans
This team of specialists also works in collaboration with the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center in Madison to offer you the most advanced options in musculoskeletal oncology care. This team approach helps ensure that you receive the best possible care.
