When it comes to esophageal cancer treatment, the opinions of multiple experts are better than one. If you live in West Palm Beach, Florida, and have been diagnosed with esophageal cancer, consider visiting Moffitt Cancer Center in nearby Tampa. Patients in our Gastrointestinal Oncology Program benefit from the expertise of a multispecialty team of physicians who focus exclusively on treating esophageal cancer and other malignancies of the gastrointestinal tract. And, because all of our services can be found under a single roof, you won’t need to travel to multiple centers in an unfamiliar city to receive the treatment you require.
Esophageal cancer patients at Moffitt have access to a multispecialty team that includes:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Interventional radiologists
- Supportive care professionals (dietitians, pain medicine specialists, social workers and others)
Every patient at Moffitt is given an individualized treatment plan developed by physicians who collaborate as a tumor board. The specifics of esophageal cancer treatment vary from case to case, but often include a combination of surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy. Moffitt offers the latest advances in treatment, including robotic surgery, radiation therapy that is highly specific to gastrointestinal cancers and novel combinations of chemotherapy. Eligible patients also have the opportunity to participate in our clinical trial program, where participants receive the latest developments in treatment before they are made available elsewhere.
