Expert Medical Opinions

An accurate diagnosis helps ensure appropriate, effective care, and can prevent costly future changes in treatment.

Expert medical opinions can be easily accessed through the MSK Direct app, helping employees impacted by cancer make informed, confident decisions about their care.
MSK’s subspecialists include surgical, medical and radiation oncologists, working in concert with pathologists and radiologists, who precisely identify someone’s cancer type and recommend a treatment plan that is right for each patient.

A recent MSK study published in Cancer Medicine demonstrated significant improvements in survival and quality of life resulting from an MSK expert medical opinion.

1 in 3 patients received a meaningful change in treatment plan recommendations.

1 in 5 patients avoided unnecessary surgical treatment harm and costs, while maintaining or improving survival.

1 in 10 patients avoided harmful and costly treatment by de-escalation of treatment all the way to active surveillance.
