Esophageal cancer treatment is available to residents from the Gulf Coast region of Florida at Moffitt Cancer Center. Moffitt physicians have treated countless patients with esophageal cancer, and the high level of skill and experience the specialists in our Gastrointestinal Oncology Program possess contributes to successful outcomes and an improved quality of life for our patients.
Many patients seek esophageal cancer treatment at Moffitt because we:
- Collaborate to develop treatment plans – Our team of medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists, surgeons and other medical professionals collaborate in multispecialty tumor board meetings to discuss each case and develop individualized treatment plans for every patient.
- Provide diagnostics, treatment and supportive care in one location – Beyond simply offering esophageal cancer treatment, Moffitt also provides related diagnostic and supportive care services under the same roof. Lab tests, imaging, counseling, postoperative care services and more are available to Moffitt patients in a single, convenient location.
- Have a robust clinical trial program – Moffitt continues to lead the way in furthering cancer research and is the only cancer center based in Florida to be designated a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Patients who participate in a clinical trial may be able to receive innovative treatment options that are not yet widely available.
Additionally, Moffitt can help patients traveling from the Gulf Coast region or other areas of Florida to find local accommodations. We have partnered with several local hotels that offer discounted rates to patients and shuttle service to and from Moffitt, helping our patients focus on resting and recovering.
