For comprehensive stomach cancer treatment, patients from Sarasota, Florida, can turn to Moffitt Cancer Center’s world-class oncologists. We have an outstanding reputation as a provider of innovative treatments.
Located in Tampa – less than two hours away from most Sarasota neighborhoods – Moffitt offers virtually every gastric cancer therapy available in a single, convenient location. Here, patients can receive:
- Chemotherapy infusions, including novel combinations that have been found to be especially effective in the treatment of stomach cancer
- Radiation therapy, administered with precise techniques that help reduce radiation exposure to other organs and tissues around the stomach
- Conventional, laparoscopic (minimally invasive) and robot-assisted surgeries
- Molecular targeted therapies, an emerging class of cancer treatments that address the unique cellular makeup of the cancer
Moffitt’s patients also have the opportunity to participate in clinical trials, which are carefully designed studies through which patients can access the newest gastric cancer treatment innovations as they become available. At the same time, our oncologists learn more about the condition and how it responds to various therapies, expanding their knowledge base and benefitting every stomach cancer patient they treat.
Our expansive range of treatments is provided by an equally expansive stomach cancer treatment team – one comprised of not only surgeons, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists, but also pharmacists, integrative health practitioners, nurses, educators and other supportive health professionals. These team members meet on a regular basis to review and refine each patient’s individualized treatment plan. This collaborative, multispecialty approach is just one more reason why our stomach cancer treatment outcomes routinely surpass national averages and our patients experience a higher quality of life.
Patients can also turn to Moffitt for assistance with lodging preparations. Our partner hotels offer discounted rates and adhere to exceptionally high hygiene standards, ensuring that all of our patients have a safe and affordable place to stay if they are traveling from out of town.
