Cancers of the gastrointestinal tract are a major health care burden and constitute the third leading cause of cancer-related deaths in both men and women in the United States. Gastrointestinal cancers include those of the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, bile duct, liver, colon, rectum, anus, intestine and peritoneum. In the past decade, several therapeutic advances have led to better treatment options and improved outcomes for patients with these cancers.
Our goal is to strive for excellence in every aspect of care that we provide in order to improve the overall outcomes and quality of life in all of our patients with gastrointestinal diseases.
