About Personalized Medicine & Cancer Care

Dr. David Spigel, of Tennessee Oncology, and Director of Lung Cancer Research Center at Sarah Cannon Research Institute, discusses the concept of personalized cancer medicine and care. Dr. Spigel describes how  oncologists can analyze a patient's unique tumor, often from the genetic make-up of the cancer, and are therefore able to prescribe a specific regimen of treatment for that person.
