Esophageal Cancer Treatment

To ensure you receive the most innovative and comprehensive care possible, our team of radiation oncologists, gastroenterologists, pathologists and other specialists works together to develop an individualized treatment plan for the best outcome possible. Collaborating twice a month, our experts gather to discuss each patient’s case, sharing treatment recommendations.

Several treatment options are available for patients with esophageal cancer, depending on factors such as your overall health and location of the tumor. In many cases, surgery is the best option for esophageal cancer and is often followed with chemotherapy or radiation.
