Your liver is a complex organ, and when you develop liver cancer you want a team of highly trained specialists at your side. In the Sutter Health network, this team includes hepatologists, surgeons, oncologists, interventional radiologists, nurses and other skilled health professionals.
Getting a picture of your liver and bile ducts can help your doctor determine the best course of treatment for your particular cancer. We offer a wide range of the latest and most reliable diagnostic and imaging tests, including magnetic resonance cholangiopancreatography and cholangioscopy.
Treatment options for liver cancer are based on the size and location of your tumor, or tumors, and underlying liver function. For some cancers, we offer a variety of advanced surgical techniques, including embolization therapy, bile duct resection, biliary bypass surgery and liver resection.
Other treatments include:
- Endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP)
- Mangetic resonance angiography (MRA)
- Percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography (PTC)
- Sterotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)
Across the Sutter Health network, our cancer centers have earned accreditation from the American College of Surgeons for providing comprehensive cancer care, from surgery and radiation to education and support groups. And doctors in the Sutter Health network make it their goal to reduce your symptoms and discomfort by providing pain management and palliative care.
