They take cancer personally

In the fight against colorectal cancer, both time and nuance are key. That’s why UC College of Medicine physicians Dr. Ian Paquette and Dr. Neha Wadhwa and the entire UC Physicians multidisciplinary team promote screening for early detection (now starting at age 45) and take the time to thoroughly review each case individually. It’s a careful, collaborative process. One that determines the best path for each patient—regardless of whether the consensus is a surgical solution or a less invasive approach. Rigorous metrics. Dedicated specialists. Working together with you in mind.

She’s opening doors to improved stroke care.

Looking back at her own father’s misdiagnosed stroke in Chicago in 2006, Dr. Pooja Khatri, co-director of the UC Gardner Neuroscience Institute Stroke Center of Excellence, wonders if local access to clinical trials might have affected the outcome. A recognized expert in the development of novel stroke therapies, Dr. Khatri cites such community access as one of the unique benefits the UC Stroke Team provides. It’s part of the team’s long tradition of interdisciplinary collaboration–opening doors to new ideas and treatments, and unlocking the next generation of standard stroke care.
