Surgery

The Liver Cancer group is an experienced and dedicated team of medical oncologists, surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, transplant surgeons, hepatologists, pathologists, behavioral psychologists, and oncology nurses who strive to provide state-of-the-art therapies for those with liver cancer, to be an educational resource for patients and the community about the disease, and to provide an environment that stimulates excellence in cancer research. The Liver Cancer group employs a multidisciplinary approach to the diagnosis and treatment of liver cancer, and much of the center's research is focused on developing, refining, and evaluating new therapies.

Basic liver cancer research efforts aim to better understand and identify liver cancer.

Clinical research trials help to identify and evaluate state-of-the-art treatments for liver tumors.

Gene therapy is a promising new area that researchers are investigating for its potential to treat primary and metastatic liver tumors.
