Your Stomach Cancer Specialists
The mission of every stomach cancer specialist in the Gastrointestinal Oncology Program at Moffitt Cancer Center is to help our patients regain their health and achieve an enhanced quality of life. Our gastric cancer experts, who rank among the best in the world, work closely together to create an individualized treatment plan to suit the unique needs of each patient. Each week, we thoroughly review each patient’s progress as it relates to his or her specific medical, nutritional and emotional needs, and then fine-tune the treatment plan as necessary.
Over the last several years, significant progress has been made in the treatment of stomach cancer, with more individuals being diagnosed in early stages than ever before. Many of these success stories take place at Moffitt, where our multispecialty tumor board diagnoses and treats more patients for this relatively uncommon condition than most other providers in the United States. This translates directly to extensive experience and highly refined expertise for each stomach cancer specialist on our team. Our specialists include:
- Surgical oncologists
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Rehabilitation therapists
- Supportive care providers
Moffitt has also received national acclaim for its groundbreaking cancer research. Through our robust clinical trials program, our patients have access to promising new therapies that aren’t yet widely available. Our clinical research team is highly experienced in recommending appropriate trials that are likely to be beneficial for our patients. By collaborating with at least one Moffitt stomach cancer specialist, each of these important studies evaluates the effectiveness of new ways to diagnose and treat gastric cancer, and can also provide a participant’s treatment team with valuable information related to his or her condition.
