Stomach cancer: our approach to care
At the Cancer Institute, our patients come first. Our physicians, surgeons, oncologists, and researchers have devoted their careers to diagnosing and treating stomach cancer. This focus gives us the expertise to find the right treatment solution for you.
We work in conjunction with AHN’s nationally recognized Esophageal and Lung Institute to obtain the best results for our patients. Features of our program include:
- Advanced technology: We use innovative breakthroughs in surgery that allow us to make microscopic incisions, so you have less scarring and an easier recovery. Many of these groundbreaking treatments are available at only a few institutions in the nation.
- Collaborative care: At our stomach cancer tumor board (cancer care meeting), we discuss patients with the most complex diagnoses. Physicians, surgeons, medical oncologists, radiologists, and researchers work together to make treatment recommendations.
- Convenient services: We designed our sophisticated facility around the needs of our patients. The large, full-service center allows you to meet with multiple physicians and experts within one visit. You can typically take care of tests, appointments, treatment, and rehab (if needed) all at the same facility. If you're having pain or other side effects, you'll get prompt treatment from one of our specialists at our convenient After Hours Oncology Clinic instead of waiting in an emergency room.
- Research-driven treatment: As a patient, you have access to the clinical trials we have here, as well as coordinated access to the clinical trials of our distinguished partners. This amounts to more than 500 active clinical trials. You can take part in the latest medical research that may help discover new, effective approaches to treatment.
