Led by a team of surgical oncologists, the center offers an alternative treatment method for people with cancer or other diseases affecting the digestive system, including:

  • Pancreas
  • Liver
  • Esophagus
  • Gastrointestinal system
  • Biliary tract

Innovative Treatments

  • Advanced laparoscopic/robotic resections (esophagus, liver, pancreas, bowel)
  • Irreversible electroporation for locally advanced liver and pancreatic cancers
  • Precision-targeted hepatic arterial radioembolization and drug-eluting bead therapies
  • Advanced surgical/interventional endoscopy
  • Innovative diagnostics, such as endoscopic ultrasound
  • State-of-the-art radiation therapy, including TheraSphere and SIR-Spheres, RapidArc radiotherapy, intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), Novalis Tx radiosurgery and TrueBeam STx

Cancers and diseases of the abdomen and digestive system can be complex and difficult to treat. They require a team approach to care that includes advanced surgical and medical therapies. Our team includes gastroenterologists, surgical oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, genetic counselors and nutritionists. Access to innovative clinical trials that help improve overall quality of life are available.
