Gastrointestinal cancers often don’t have any symptoms in the early stages. Once discovered, specialists in the Sutter Health network use many different methods to treat digestive tract cancers, including chemotherapy and radiation therapy. For some cancers, we offer the latest and most advanced surgical techniques, including the Sugarbaker procedure. We also offer comprehensive support services to help you through your cancer journey.
Available diagnostic scans and procedures include:
- Fecal occult blood tests
- Gastrectomy, Laser therapy
- Magnetic resonance angiogram (MRA)
- Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT)
- Upper GI and small bowel series
Sutter’s nine cancer centers throughout Northern California have all earned accreditation from the American College of Surgeons for providing comprehensive care, from surgery and radiation to education and support groups. Across the network, our hospitals have been named top performers by the Integrated Healthcare Association for high colon cancer screening rates that lead to early cancer detection and better patient outcomes.
