At Moffitt Cancer Center, many unique esophageal cancer treatment options are provided in a single convenient location. Every year, many patients from Bradenton, Florida, travel to our National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center to access the latest advancements in cancer care, as well as the unparalleled expertise of our skilled oncologists. Located just a short drive away in Tampa, we put world-class cancer care within reach.
At Moffitt, we understand that there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all esophageal cancer treatment plan. We offer completely individualized care for every patient we treat – from the surgeries, chemotherapy drugs and radiation therapy delivery methods we recommend, to the clinical trials we suggest, and even the supportive care services we offer throughout recovery. Each patient’s case is reviewed by a multispecialty team of oncologists, who will consider a number of factors to design a tailored treatment plan that suits the patient’s unique diagnosis and personal needs.
At Moffitt Cancer Center, patients from Bradenton can receive:
- Innovative esophageal cancer surgeries, such as minimally invasive and robotic procedures (in addition to conventional operations, such as open esophagectomies)
- Chemotherapy infusions
- Radiation therapy (delivered through a number of highly targeted techniques that spare the surrounding tissues)
- Laser therapy, electrocoagulation, immunotherapy, genetic therapies and other novel treatments
These therapies are all administered by oncologists who specialize exclusively in the treatment of esophageal cancer. Our unparalleled level of focus and expertise gives us the desirable ability to produce outcomes that routinely exceed national averages, as well as improved quality of life for our patients.
Additionally, supportive care services are available from our team of dietitians, pharmacists, nurses, integrative medicine providers and social workers. Providing multiple expert opinions while taking a comprehensive approach to care is just one of the many reasons that Moffitt Cancer Center is the best destination for complete cancer care. And, to make the trip easier for our out-of-town guests, we’ve partnered with several local hotels that offer discounted rates to Moffitt patients and ensure that our high hygiene and cleanliness standards are met.
