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.

What about the mouth and throat?
Scott & White has a specialized head and neck cancer team that focuses on cancers of the lips, mouth, throat and surrounding tissues and organs. Find out more.

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.
