Personalized treatment, also known as precision medicine, is increasingly recognized as a crucial aspect of healthcare that can coexist with standardized clinical practices. It involves tailoring medical treatment to the individual characteristics of each patient, which can lead to more effective and efficient healthcare.

Personalized treatment complements standardized practices to ensure that care is both consistent and optimally suited to each patient’s situation.
