The gastrointestinal (GI) carcinoid tumor specialists within Moffitt Cancer Center’s Gastrointestinal Oncology Program have devoted their careers to evaluating, diagnosing and treating patients with GI cancers. From screening to survivorship, Moffitt’s physicians have an unrivaled level of experience addressing even the most complex gastrointestinal carcinoid tumors, and take a collaborative approach to treatment to achieve the best possible outcome and quality of life.
Patients at Moffitt benefit from the collective expertise of a multispecialty team of experts, not just a single physician. In one location, patients in our GI carcinoid tumor program are seen by:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Endoscopy specialists
- Pain intervention specialists
- And other experts
When it comes to designing an effective course of treatment, multiple opinions are better than one. That’s why we use our physicians’ diverse expertise to formulate individualized treatment plans for our patients. Treatment plans are developed by our tumor board, which collaboratively creates each plan according to the patient’s specific needs.
More distinguishing factors of Moffitt’s GI carcinoid tumor program include our robust clinical trials and research initiatives. Our professionals stand at the forefront of cancer research, and are regularly developing new therapies and screening methods to more effectively detect and treat GI cancers. Moffitt patients are able to receive promising new treatments, such as cell-based therapy, before they are made widely available. Our research efforts have earned us the distinction of a National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center – the only one based in Florida.
