Liver and Pancreas Cancer Treatment

We strive to provide a comprehensive approach to valuate, counsel and treat patients with liver and pancreatic cancer and other major conditions.

  • Surgical Resection: For certain patients diagnosed with cancers of the liver, pancreas or biliary system, surgery (resection) offers the best chance for cure or long-term survival.
  • Laparoscopic Surgery: Laparoscopic surgery involves removing certain tumors through three or four half-inch incisions. Laparoscopic surgery usually results in faster recovery, less pain and scarring.
  • Radiofrequency Ablation: For people with inoperable primary or metastatic liver tumors, RFA is an exciting new approach to destroying tumors in the liver. This procedure helps to shrink the tumor by placing a probe through an incision in the body so tiny electrodes can destroy cancer cells with heat.
  • Intrahepatic Chemotherapy/Chemoembolization: For people diagnosed with liver cancer, chemoembolization is the process of injecting chemotherapy drugs into the artery that supplies blood to the tumor in the liver.
