Choosing the right cancer center for your esophageal cancer treatment is important. Generally speaking, patients have a better chance at achieving a favorable outcome and an improved quality of life when they are receiving treatment at a high-volume cancer center with experienced physicians. You’ll also want to learn about the treatments offered at your cancer center, and if they offer innovative options such as minimally invasive and robotic-assisted surgeries.
Esophageal cancer treatment at Moffitt Cancer Center
Comprehensive esophageal cancer treatment from experienced physicians can be found at Moffitt Cancer Center. Here are just a few of the reasons that patients across the country choose to travel to Moffitt for esophageal cancer treatment:
- Moffitt patients benefit from the expertise of a multispecialty team, rather than a single physician. Our Gastrointestinal Oncology Program is made up of highly skilled medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, endoscopic oncologists, pathologists and other experts whose sole focus are cancers of the GI tract.
- Moffitt is a high-volume cancer center, and we regularly treat patients with uncommon and complex malignancies such as esophageal cancer.
- Each patient at Moffitt receives an individualized treatment plan that has been tailored to address the challenges of their specific cancer.
- Moffitt patients have access to supportive care specialists throughout the duration of their treatment to help them cope with the challenges of undergoing cancer treatment.
Additionally, Moffitt has been designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, and is the only one based in Florida. This achievement speaks to our dedication to advancing cancer research and treatment through our robust clinical trials program. Through this program, eligible patients are able to receive novel therapies before they are made available elsewhere. Moffitt is making breakthroughs in cancer research and treatment every day, and we will not be satisfied until there is a cure.
