Your Esophageal Cancer Specialists
Every esophageal cancer specialist in the Gastrointestinal Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center is a member of a multispecialty tumor board of experts. Our highly experienced team is nationally recognized for its strengths in diagnosing and treating tumors of the esophagus. This is significant because esophageal tumors are relatively rare. At Moffitt, we work closely with each patient to recommend an individualized treatment plan, then continually fine-tune the plan as necessary to ensure that the patient receives the best possible treatment at each phase of his or her cancer journey.
Each esophageal cancer specialist on Moffitt’s team has highly focused expertise in a single area, such as:
- Surgical oncology
- Medical oncology
- Radiation therapy
- Interventional radiology
- Supportive care
By making each esophageal cancer specialist – as well as a comprehensive range of diagnostic, treatment and support services – available in a single location, Moffitt provides a streamlined patient experience. For added convenience, we do not require referrals.
As a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, Moffitt has received nationwide acclaim for its groundbreaking research efforts. As we continually work to improve treatment for all current and future patients who are diagnosed with esophageal cancer, our team also leads clinical trials of promising new treatment approaches. Each of these important studies is overseen by at least one esophageal cancer specialist, allowing our patients to benefit from novel therapies before those options are made available elsewhere.
As a direct result of our steady gains in improving surgical techniques and post-surgical care, as well as developing more effective chemotherapy and radiation therapy options, Moffitt’s patient outcomes and quality of life are continually improving. We remain steadfastly committed to one day finding a cure.
