Norton Healthcare offers a care team devoted to stomach and digestive cancers
Upper gastrointestinal (GI) cancers affect the esophagus, stomach, liver, biliary tract and pancreas. Many patients require the care of several specialties for a specific condition at the same time. The coordination of care and time commitment of having multiple appointments can be difficult for some people to manage. Multiple specialists provide services at our multidisciplinary clinic so patients have access to the expertise available from Norton Healthcare in one place.
Multidisciplinary clinics are designed to combine several specialties into one visit, creating a convenient way to manage your care. Our diverse team includes medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, surgical oncologists, interventional radiologists, an interventional gastroenterologist, pathologists, radiologists, researchers, geneticists and dietitians. These specialists work together to create a coordinated plan for you, including treatment, care and follow-up.
