An Innovative Approach to Cancer Care
At OhioHealth, our approach to cancer care involves a partnership across several specialties to provide extraordinary care for our GI patients. Our physicians work together to analyze your specific case and develop a personalized treatment plan. The focus is always on your individual needs and experience, so we pay special attention to your quality-of-life concerns, wellness, spiritual and emotional care.
Expertise for Common and Complex Gastrointestinal Cancer Conditions
Our program includes a multidisciplinary team review with cancer specialists that include surgical oncologists, medical oncologists and radiation oncologists. These specialists meet weekly to discuss complex, GI cancer patient cases, such as patients with difficult tumors or those who are not responding to treatment for various reasons and require a different treatment plan.
OhioHealth MD Anderson Cancer Network® certified physicians also have the opportunity to present patient cases and get treatment advice at MD Anderson multidisciplinary treatment conferences, as well as peer-to-peer consultations.
Some gastrointestinal cancers run in the family.
The OhioHealth Genetic Counseling program can help determine if the cancer in your family is hereditary and develop the most appropriate ongoing care plan.
