When you choose to have cancer treatment at Torrance Memorial Medical Center, you can feel confident that your care is in the hands of true experts.

Tumor Board

During every phase of your own personalized treatment plan, designed to provide you with the best odds of a positive outcome, our community of expert physicians, nurses and staff is available to answer questions, offer guidance and do everything we can to make your experience as comfortable as it can be. Teamwork is the heart of our cancer care program at Torrance Memorial; coordination of care is essential to the success of your cancer treatment.

At our weekly Tumor Board meetings, our physicians come together to review individual cancer patient cases, discuss various treatment options and also to examine the latest research findings pertinent to the cases being presented. This meeting includes specialists from surgery, pathology, radiation oncology, reconstructive surgery, medical oncology, pulmonology, and urology. Oncology nurse navigators, other members of the oncology team, and the patient’s primary care and treating physicians typically attend Tumor Board. Together the group arrives at a recommended course of action for each patient’s treatment.
