Stomach cancer surgery is often a cornerstone of a patient’s treatment plan. For a surgical procedure to be successful, however, it must be performed with a high level of precision and expertise. This is exactly what patients are seeking when they travel from Bradenton, Florida, to Tampa’s renowned Moffitt Cancer Center.
Moffitt is can provide patients from Bradenton with top-caliber surgical treatments. Our surgeons don’t just perform stomach cancer surgery, they:
- Evaluate each patient’s unique needs, as well as the size, location and stage of the tumor, to determine if resection is possible, and if so, they identify the best approach to take. In many cases, our surgeons may recommend minimally invasive or robotic approaches to surgery, so that patients can benefit from the shorter recovery times and lower complication rates these procedures typically offer.
- Work exclusively with stomach cancer patients. At Moffitt, our surgeons each dedicate their entire careers to specializing in a single cancer site. As a result, their knowledge base and experience can’t be matched.
- Are involved in ongoing surgical research. Moffitt is a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center, which speaks to our commitment to constantly improving stomach cancer treatment. While our surgeries are highly effective, our surgeons are tirelessly searching for new ways to make these procedures less invasive and accelerate the recovery process.
- Work as part of multispecialty treatment team. Stomach cancer treatment rarely ends with surgery. Moffitt’s surgeons work alongside radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, pharmacists, anesthesiologists, pathologists, nurses, integrative care providers and a number of other medical professionals to give each patient the comprehensive care they deserve.
Our team can also help out-of-town patients find a clean, comfortable place to stay during treatment. Several local hotels offer discounted rates to Moffitt’s patients and ensure that they and their families can focus on recovery rather than the logistics of travel.
