When it comes to treating esophageal cancer, the opinions of multiple physicians are better than one. That’s why Moffitt Cancer Center takes a multispecialty approach to treatment for our patients from West Palm Beach, Florida, and throughout the country. In a single location, patients within our Gastrointestinal Oncology Program benefit from the expertise of medical oncologists, endoscopic oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists and other experts who focus exclusively on treating malignancies of the gastrointestinal tract.
Moffitt is a large cancer center capable of handling high patient volume, which means thousands of residents of West Palm Beach, FL, and other cities choose to travel to our Tampa location for their cancer treatment. There are several reasons for this, including our:
- Innovative treatments – Moffitt’s advanced esophageal cancer treatments include minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgery, radiation therapy, biologic immune therapy, radiofrequency ablation and more.
- Tailored treatment plans – Moffitt’s tumor board collaborates to design individualized treatment plans that accommodate each patient’s specific diagnosis and medical needs.
- Research initiatives – Moffitt stands at the forefront of cancer research, as evidenced by our distinction as a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center. Our gastrointestinal physicians hold dual appointments at Moffitt and the University of South Florida College of Medicine, one of the country’s leading research universities.
- Patient-focused care – Moffitt places an emphasis on each patient’s overall well-being, which is why comprehensive supportive care from social workers, pain management specialists, dietitians and other professionals is provided under the same roof as our clinical treatment services. We also offer discounted hotel rates to out-of-town patients and their families to help reduce financial stress.
Another distinguishing factor of Moffitt is our robust clinical trial program. Our evidence-based clinical trials allow eligible patients to receive the latest breakthroughs in esophageal cancer treatment before they are available elsewhere.
