Both innovative and experienced, Atrium Health Levine Cancer's team offers exceptional care for gastrointestinal (GI) cancer.

GI cancer is cancer that affects any of the organs in the digestive system, including:
  • Esophagus
  • Stomach
  • Gallbladder
  • Liver
  • Small intestine
  • Large intestine
  • Rectum
  • Anus

The majority of gastrointestinal cancers are called colorectal cancer and occur in the colon (which is the last 6 feet of the large intestine) and rectum (which is the last 6 inches of the colon).

Gastrointestinal cancer treatment

To ensure you receive the most effective care, 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 GI cancer, depending on factors such as your overall health and cancer location. In many cases, surgery is the best option for GI cancer and is often followed by chemotherapy or radiation therapy.
