Innovative Treatment Options Tailored to the Patient
When it comes to liver cancer and other gastrointestinal conditions, expert evaluation is vital to accurately diagnose liver cancer and then determine the best course of treatment for the individual patient.
At Hoag, our multidisciplinary team of gastrointestinal experts includes gastroenterologists, liver surgeons, liver transplant surgeons, medical oncologists, hepatologists and interventional radiologists who work together to thoroughly review and determine the best treatment option suited to each individual patient.
The team then carefully tailors a personalized treatment plan to effectively achieve the best possible outcome for the patient. This emphasis on a collaborative, comprehensive approach to patient-centered care is why Hoag patient outcomes rank are among the nation’s best.
Once liver cancer is diagnosed, important staging tests are performed to determine if the cancer has spread, and if so, to what extent.
The type of treatment recommended depends upon the stage of the cancer and may include options such as:
- Surgery (right lobectomy, left lobectomy, trisegmentectomy and wedge resection)
- Laparoscopic Liver Surgery
- Robotic-Assisted Liver Surgery
- Radiofrequency Ablation
- Arterial Chemotherapy
- Transarterial Chemoembolization (TACE)
- Yttrium-90 Radioembolization
Clinical trials play a significant role in gastrointestinal cancer treatment. That’s why Hoag-USC physicians participate in a variety of clinical trials in order to bring advanced care to Hoag liver cancer patients.
