Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute

 

The Cancer Institute Team

The Maine Medical Center Cancer Institute has a team of cancer experts that includes hospital- and community-based physicians. While some of MMC's cancer doctors are employees of the medical center, others are in private practice.

Every member of this team is committed to participating in programs and initiatives that enhance the quality of cancer care at MMC Cancer Institute.
The team provides care that meets national guidelines, as well as the rigorous standards of an accredited teaching hospital cancer program from the Commission on Cancer of the American College of Surgeons.

Participating physicians agree to comply with the following program requirements:

  • Adhere to published national and regional evidence-based treatment guidelines in patient care plans;
  • Have clinical training and experience that demonstrate expertise in the care of patients with cancer;
  • Participate in the MMC Cancer Institute committee, such as tumor site-specific work groups, multidisciplinary conferences, and quality monitoring mechanisms;
  • Provide MMC’s cancer registry with timely information, including accurate staging; and
  • Care for, or consult on the care of, a sufficient number of cancer patients to maintain competency in their specialty.

Below is an overview of the major physician practices and additional team members that provide exceptional care as part of the MMC Cancer Institute:

Cancer Risk and Prevention Clinic
Cancer Risk and Prevention Clinic at Maine Medical Center’s Cancer Institute is for people who are concerned about their own risk or other family members’ risk of cancer. Although most cancers are not "inherited”, some families have a higher risk of cancer and could benefit from early detection or steps to lower their risk. The experts at the clinic help patients and their families understand how their genes may affect their risk for cancer and how they can manage this risk.
