How we work

Our team is a multidisciplinary group which is composed of physicians and healthcare professionals who are specialized in treatment of patients affected by GIST and includes experts in internal medicine, oncology, gastroenterology, surgery, radiology, nuclear medicine, pathology and molecular biology.

The team meets regularly to discuss clinical cases. The decisions made during these meetings are discussed with the patients who are called for a visit at the Institute of “Hematology and Medical Oncology “L. e A. Seràgnoli.

The diagnostic, therapeutic and follow-up program carried out by the team is periodically updated in line with results based on scientific literature and national and international meetings.

In general the procedure for the initial visits is as follows:

First visit: the patient has the first visit, booked according to the modality recommended in the section ‘how to contact us’ , where his/her medical history and all the medical records related to his/her pathology will be taken.

Team discussion: The clinical case will be discussed at the multidisciplinary meeting where the diagnostic and therapeutic program will be decided.

Second visit: The patient will be summoned to communicate the outcome of the team’s meeting. At the Institute the patient will begin the most appropriate course of treatment with future visits programmed at our facilities.
