If you require stomach cancer treatment, you may be feeling overwhelmed or confused about your next steps. There are several important decisions that must be made regarding your treatment, and it’s important to partner with a cancer center that has experienced professionals who can walk you through this process. Moffitt Cancer Center, located a short drive from Fort Myers, Florida, in Tampa, is an excellent choice for individualized stomach cancer treatment and compassionate supportive care. Moffitt’s Gastrointestinal Oncology Program offers the latest advances in surgical techniques and cancer therapies to achieve more positive outcomes and improved quality of life for our patients.
How is stomach cancer treated?
Stomach cancer treatment plans will vary from patient to patient, but many include a combination of surgery to remove growths, chemotherapy and radiation therapy to destroy cancer cells, and molecularly targeted therapy to impede cancer growth.
One of the factors that sets Moffitt apart from other cancer centers is our collaborative, comprehensive approach to treatment. Our stomach cancer program includes physicians from multiple specialties who work hand-in-hand to develop individualized treatments for our patients. These specialties includes:
- Medical oncology
- Radiation oncology
- Surgical oncology
- Interventional radiology
Moffitt’s team also includes interventional pain medicine specialists, dietitians, counselors and other supportive care professionals who help patients overcome the emotional and physical side effects of stomach cancer and its treatment.
Although Moffitt offers a full spectrum of stomach cancer treatment and care, we won’t be satisfied until there is a cure. That’s why we lead an ambitious clinical trial program and trailblazing research initiatives to improve the way gastrointestinal cancers are detected and treated.
Patients who are traveling to Moffitt from Fort Myers, FL, are invited to take advantage of reduced rates at our partner hotels. These hotels are committed to providing a comfortable environment for our patients and meet or exceed our stringent hygiene standards.
