/ Upper GI Cancers
Spectrum Health Cancer Center has the largest and most comprehensive upper gastrointestinal (UGI) program in the region. With a team of experts dedicated to this complex field, we can offer a full compliment of the very latest in diagnostics and treatment for benign and malignant tumors of the UGI tract.
Our comprehensive multispecialty team diagnoses and treats more UGI cancer cases than any other hospital in the region; high volumes are associated with better outcomes for these complicated surgeries.
Our goal is to see every patient within 48 hours of referral. This allows prompt diagnosis and implementation of a comprehensive treatment plan developed by our multispecialty team. The earlier we see a patient in the course of their disease progression, the greater the chance for a more desirable outcome.
Our team-based approach, wide array of services, clinical expertise and focus on quality differentiate our program, make it a center of excellence and a destination for care.
