Stomach cancer surgery requires a high level of precision and expertise, both of which patients can benefit from at Moffitt Cancer Center in Tampa, just a short drive away from Clearwater, Florida. At Moffitt, we have surgical oncologists who focus exclusively on performing stomach cancer procedures.
Our team performs a high number of stomach cancer operations each year, including keyhole surgeries, partial gastrectomies and total gastrectomies. In general, surgeons become more efficient in their approaches with each procedure performed, and our surgical oncologists are among the most precise in their field.
Because our surgeons routinely exceed better-than-average survival outcomes and significant quality-of-life improvements for our patients, many individuals from Clearwater and other nearby areas choose Moffitt for their treatments. Those who come to Moffitt for stomach cancer surgery also benefit from:
- Our use of today’s most advanced surgical techniques, including robot-assisted and minimally invasive approaches whenever possible
- Our comprehensive range of stomach cancer treatments – from surgery and radiation therapy to chemotherapy and immunotherapy – in a single, convenient location
- Our robust clinical trials portfolio, through which advanced surgical procedures and nonsurgical treatments are accessible to our patients before those options are made widely available in other settings
Additionally, we offer a comprehensive range of supportive care services to patients who are recovering from stomach cancer operations. As an example: Moffitt’s experienced dietitians are here to develop individualized nutrition plans for patients whose appetites change after surgery, helping to ensure that they obtain all of the nutrients necessary for a full recovery.
Individuals from Clearwater, FL, and other areas can receive stomach cancer surgery at Moffitt with or without a referral.
