Treatment & support

Upper gastrointestinal cancer treatment

To ensure you receive the most effective care possible, our team of gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists and other specialists works together to develop an individualized treatment plan, for the best outcome possible. Diagnostic and treatment plans for most patients are discussed at a multi-disciplinary case conference attended by all of our experts. 

Several treatment options are available for patients with GI cancer, depending on factors such as your overall health and cancer location. In many cases, surgery is the best option for GI cancer and is often coupled with chemotherapy or radiation.

Other important treatment modalities include:

  • Endoscopic resection 
  • Chemo- or radio-embolization
  • Radiofrequency or microwave ablation
  • Targeted oral therapies
  • Immunotherapy
