Why Does Experience Matter?

Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Axness' Care Philosophy

As Director of Pain Management and Anesthesiology Services at Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) at Southwestern Regional Medical Center, Dr. Axness is a firm believer in treating the whole patient. He believes it is difficult to deal with a patient s pain without addressing the whole person. Even though we feel that treatment that we give in the pain department is very important, there are many issues that go on, including spiritual issues, emotional issues, even logistical and financial issues. At CTCA, Dr. Axness works with a team of clinicians who help him address all the patient s needs, which he believes is beneficial to the patient in numerous ways. Typically in a community cancer type setting, you have a number of physicians who are positioned across the city. It's time consuming for the patients. It's frustrating to get from here to there. But there's also the issue regarding communication between physicians. Here at CTCA, it's a matter of walking 40 or 50 feet, meeting my colleagues in different areas to be able to discuss with them directly about the patient care that I'm doing, as well as what they're doing concurrently. That ability to consult with his colleagues is something Dr. Axness values and believes increases the level of care provided to patients. Here at CTCA, there's the opportunity to work exclusively in a heavily integrated model where communication is wonderful between not just the patients, but also with the other treating physicians. But for Dr. Axness, it is CTCA s Mother Standard of care that really makes the difference. The introduction of the concept of Mother Standard has really raised my standard of practice. It really makes me reflect on every single patient as to how I would want myself to be treated, my mother to be treated, any of my family to be treated. Not only does it really up the bar in terms of how I would treat a patient, it also increases my relationship with that patient and it generally works for a better outcome.
