To access the newest and most effective liver cancer treatment options, countless patients from Bradenton, Florida, choose Moffitt Cancer Center. In a single, convenient location, we offer an expansive variety of liver cancer therapies, ranging from surgery, radiation therapy and chemotherapy to biological therapy, cryotherapy and radiofrequency ablation. Due to our commitment to bringing our patients the newest and most effective therapies possible and furthering the goals of liver cancer research, the National Cancer Institute has named Moffitt a Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only such center based in Florida.
Moffitt’s oncologists have experience in treating liver cancers of all types and stages, including tumors that have metastasized to other parts of the body and cancers that have come back after initial treatment. We evaluate each patient individually and make treatment recommendations based on:
- The size, stage and location of the cancer
- The cellular characteristics of the tumor
- The patient’s age, health and personal preferences
No matter which liver cancer treatment options our oncologists recommend, all of a patient’s therapies are provided under one roof. Novel chemotherapy combinations, targeted radiation therapy delivery techniques, robotic and minimally invasive surgeries and even clinical trials are all available at the same campus in Tampa, which is located just over an hour away from most neighborhoods in Bradenton.
To provide such a wide range of innovative therapies, we’ve developed specialized treatment teams within our Gastrointestinal Oncology Program. Our liver cancer treatment team exclusively treats patients with liver cancer; this highly focused approach allows us to provide an exceptional caliber of specialized care. When a patient works with one of Moffitt’s surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, nurses or other providers, the patient can trust that he or she is in good hands.
To help make it easier for out-of-town patients to travel for treatment, we’ve partnered with several local hotels. These properties all uphold high cleanliness and comfort standards, and even offer special rates for Moffitt’s patients.
