ENTEROSTOMAL THERAPY
If you have had or require an enterostomy or similar surgical operation — such as an ileostomy, colostomy, or urostomy — our dedicated therapists will assist you with specialized, ongoing care.

TREATMENT OF METASTATIC DISEASE
If your cancer has spread to other parts of the body, your treatment plan may include chemotherapy, hormone therapy, biological therapy, radiation therapy, surgery, or a combination of these.

RADIOEMBOLIZATION
Radioembolization is an advanced, outpatient radiation therapy used to treat some forms of gastrointestinal cancer. This treatment uses microscopic radioactive beads to reach and kill tumors through the bloodstream, without causing damage to surrounding tissue.
