Cancers of the digestive tract include cancers found in the esophagus, stomach, pancreas, liver and bile duct, gallbladder, and small and large intestines. At Sutter Cancer Centers, doctors diagnose and treat common and complex gastrointestinal tract cancers including carcinomas, sarcomas and lymphomas.
Sutter Cancer Centers offer the latest techniques in diagnosing and treating gastrointestinal cancers along with comprehensive services to provide care and support to you and your loved ones. Some advanced diagnostic tools your doctor might use include barium enema, endoscopic ultrasound, laparoscopy, polyp biopsy and upper gastrointestinal small-bowel series.
Treatment options include chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and a variety of the latest and most advanced surgical techniques. We offer laser ablation and the Sugarbaker and Whipple procedures. At Sutter Medical Center, Sacramento, and Sutter Roseville Medical Center, part of Sutter Cancer Centers, we offer surgery using the da Vinci Xi robotic-assisted surgical system, which provides a magnified, three-dimensional view of the surgery site, accessed through micro-incisions, that allows your surgeon’s hand to make extremely precise movements.
We also offer comprehensive support services to help you through your cancer journey. Our Nurse Navigator Program can help you understand your condition, explore and prepare for treatments, maximize your recovery process, evaluate clinical trial opportunities, and manage care-related financial issues.
Sutter Cancer Centers in Auburn, Modesto, Roseville, Sacramento and Vallejo have all earned accreditation from the American College of Surgeons for providing comprehensive care, from surgery and radiation to education and support groups. Sutter Davis Hospital and Sutter Amador Hospital are also part of our Sutter Cancer Centers network.
