Liver cancer surgery can be one of the most important aspects of a patient’s treatment plan. Because it’s crucial to remove as much of the cancer from the body as possible, many patients choose to come from Bradenton, Florida, to Moffitt Cancer Center. Located in Tampa, Moffitt is a nationally respected name in surgical expertise. Our liver cancer outcomes are routinely better than national averages, and we take a unique approach to surgical treatment that enables us to enhance each patient’s quality of life.
At Moffitt, all of our surgeons specialize in a specific tumor site. When a patient turns to us for liver cancer surgery, he or she will work with a treatment team that is uniquely familiar with the challenges of liver cancer, specifically. And, to ensure that a patient receives the most comprehensive treatment possible, his or her treatment team will include gastrointestinal surgeons as well as radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, nurses, pharmacists, radiologists, educators and wide range of supportive care professionals.
Moffitt’s liver cancer surgeons have extensive experience with complete and partial liver resections. As a high-volume cancer center, we perform hundreds of gastrointestinal surgeries each year. Many of these surgeries are completed using conventional techniques, while others utilize innovative approaches. For instance, our surgeons are thoroughly familiar with:
- Minimally invasive techniques
- Robotic techniques
- Radiofrequency ablation
- Other alternatives to conventional liver resections
As a pioneer in researching, developing and utilizing advanced liver cancer treatments, Moffitt has been named a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. We are the only such center based in Florida, serving patients from the Bradenton region and beyond. And, to accommodate those that are traveling from outside our immediate area, we’ve partnered with several local hotels that uphold stringent safety and hygiene standards while offering discounts to our patients.
