As a patient of the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute, you receive care from expert physicians who use the most innovative approaches to treat liver cancer. We are one of a select group of medical institutions in the country to have a program devoted solely to treating patients with liver cancer. This includes those with primary liver tumors and those with disease that has metastasized to the liver from other parts of the body.
Why the Cancer Institute?
Cancer Institute doctors are among the most experienced specialists in the country, and we develop treatment plans based on years of expertise and evidence-based success. Our team includes surgical oncologists (doctors who remove cancer through surgery), radiation oncologists (doctors who use radiation to treat cancer), medical oncologists (doctors who use specialized drugs to treat cancer), and radiologists (doctors who use imaging to diagnose cancer).
We know that working together creates success. That’s why Cancer Institute doctors from many different specialties collaborate to determine how best to treat the cancer that is afflicting you. Our surgeons, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, radiologists and support staff attend weekly conferences to discuss patients’ cases and potential treatment options. Your doctor collects input from the group of specialists and develops an all-compassing treatment plan that leads to the most positive outcome.
Our scientists and physicians continually research new treatments and cures that allow us to bring medical discoveries from the laboratory directly to you. These breakthroughs help us to improve cancer prevention, diagnosis and treatment. We are currently conducting more than 200 cancer-related clinical trials, giving us even more resources and optimism for finding effective treatments.
