Compassionate, Leading-Edge Cancer Care

Gastrointestinal cancer occurs when abnormal cells develop in the digestive track, leading to the formation of tumors. Patients from around the world come to the Florida Hospital Cancer Institute (FHCI) for our early detection and advanced treatments for these types of cancers.
