Having a digestive tract cancer can be a scary and overwhelming experience for you and your loved ones. At CPMC's Cancer Center, gastroenterologists and cancer specialists diagnose and treat cancers found in the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, gallbladder, liver and bile duct, and small and large intestines.
Gastrointestinal cancers often don’t have any symptoms in the early stages. Once discovered, our specialists 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 and Whipple procedures. We also offer comprehensive support services to help you through your cancer journey.
The CPMC Cancer Center is accredited by the American College of Surgeons for providing comprehensive care, from surgery and radiation to education and support groups. In 2016 we received the America’s 100 Best Hospitals for Gastrointestinal Care Award™ from Healthgrades.
