Treatments for Stomach Cancer

Your Treatment Begins Here

Small, early-stage tumors benefit from certain treatments, while later-stage cancer may require more extensive surgery, targeted chemotherapy and radiation. Our multidisciplinary team of experts will consult with you and your loved ones when it comes to diagnosing and treating your stomach cancer. We provide the experience, technology and personalized treatment options to help you achieve the best possible outcome. 

Treatments We Provide

  • Chemotherapy

    This well-known cancer treatment uses medicines taken intravenously or by mouth to kill cancer cells throughout the body. Chemotherapy may be given before surgery to shrink tumors, or after to fight cancer cells that have potentially spread.

  • Gastrectomy

    For certain stomach cancers, surgery to remove the entire stomach may be recommended. While this is a major recovery, it is curative when it is the recommended treatment.

  • Intensity-Modulated Radiation

    IMRT is an advanced form of radiation that uses external beams mapped to the exact shape of the tumor. The strength of beams can be adjusted. It is delivered from multiple directions to protect normal tissue nearby.

  • Partial Gastrectomy

    Part of the stomach may be removed, or in some instances, a "sleeve' surgery removes the left side of the stomach.

  • Radiation Oncology

    A team of medical professionals with advanced training deliver radiation treatment and care.

  • Targeted Therapy

    New, targeted drugs work to kill stomach cancer cells better than chemotherapy, and with fewer side effects.
