Gastrointestinal Cancer Care
My philosophy is that patients should always understand what is going on. Some of these diseases are very difficult to understand, but we spend a lot of time going over, and helping them understand what their disease is, and why we're doing what we're doing, what our goal is in treating them, and what their expected outcomes could be with treatment.
Your digestive system is complex. It takes a wide variety of expert specialists and subspecialists to manage the clinical care of your gastrointestinal (GI) system.
Expertise and skill are the hallmarks of your Scott & White gastrointestinal (GI) cancer program. Our multidisciplinary group of physicians has the specialized training and the experience necessary to diagnose, evaluate and treat cancers of the GI tract and accessory digestive organs, including:
- Gallbladder and Bile Duct
- Colon (large intestine)
- Small intestine (Health information from the American Cancer Society)
- Appendix (Health information from Cancer.Net)
- Anus (Health information from the American Cancer Society)
Cancers that originate in different organs of your GI tract are generally diagnosed and treated differently. For that reason, we've created site-specific cancer content pages.
For more information, please select from the parts of the gastrointestinal system listed above.
