World-class esophageal cancer treatment is available within a short drive of Sarasota, Florida, at the renowned Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa. In a single, convenient location, patients can access a complete range of advanced therapies – from surgery and radiation therapy to immunotherapy and clinical trials – all under the care of highly specialized oncologists who exclusively treat esophageal cancer.
As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Moffitt is a recognized leader in esophageal cancer research and treatment. We provide our patients with a number of innovative options that aren’t widely used in other settings in the Sarasota area, such as:
- Minimally invasive and robotic esophageal cancer surgeries
- Novel chemotherapy combinations
- Targeted radiation therapy delivery methods
- Immunotherapies and other biological treatments
- Laser therapy, electrocoagulation therapy and other innovative options
And, through our robust Supportive Care Program, patients are able to work with integrative medicine providers, dietitians, pharmacists and even spiritual and psychosocial counselors to help achieve a high quality of life throughout treatment and beyond. We’re not just here to provide treatment – we’re here to provide hope.
While taking a comprehensive approach to treatment is a key part of what we do, what truly sets us apart is the individualized care we provide to each patient. We understand that all patients are unique – right down to the cellular composition of their tumors – and we take this into account when creating esophageal cancer treatment plans. Our multispecialty tumor board evaluates each patient’s needs and identifies the therapies that offer the most promise, as well as the order in which the therapies should be delivered to be the most effective. Using this approach to cancer treatment is just one way that we’ve been able to produce esophageal cancer outcomes that are above the national averages and improve patients’ quality of life.
Because traveling for out-of-area esophageal cancer treatment can be difficult, we’ve partnered with several local hotels to make things easier. Moffitt’s patients can take advantage of specially discounted rates and enjoy a high standard of hospitality at properties that meet our cleanliness and hygiene standards.
