Gastrointestinal Cancers

The Cancer Institute at North Shore-LIJ provides comprehensive and coordinated care for the diagnoses and treatment of all cancers of the digestive system including colon, rectum, pancreas, esophagus, liver, stomach, bowel, gallbladder and bile ducts.

To achieve the best possible treatment outcomes, our team of medical, surgical and radiation oncologists, gastroenterologist, pathologists, nurses and social workers collaborate to develop an individualized treatment plan and provide the highest quality of care for the diagnosis, treatment and support to people with this disease.

We provide the newest and most promising treatments including Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT), which allows for precise radiation doses to navigate to specific areas within the tumor through three-dimensional imaging and therapies only available through clinical research trials. The most advanced procedures are employed including minimally invasive surgery, video endoscopy for diagnosis, and laparoscopic techniques for colon and rectal cancer surgery.
