Moffitt Cancer Center is a nationally recognized leader in stomach cancer surgery, offering a complete range of traditional, robotic and laparoscopic procedures for the treatment of gastric tumors. A short drive away from Sarasota, Florida, we provide world-class surgical care at our easily accessible campus in Tampa. From endoscopic resections and traditional gastrectomies to minimally invasive procedures and tumor ablations, our team performs hundreds of gastrointestinal surgeries each year, producing patient outcomes that are consistently better than national averages and a higher quality of life for patients.
Not only are we a high-volume cancer center, but we have specialized surgical teams that work exclusively with stomach cancer. This means that a patient who comes to Moffitt for stomach cancer surgery will work with a team who truly understands the nature of the patient’s exact condition. As a result, we’re able to individualize each patient’s treatment plan and operate with great expertise in a manner that’s truly unique to Moffitt.
Patients who receive surgery at Moffitt also benefit from our unique, multispecialty approach to cancer care. As part of our commitment to providing multiple expert opinions in a single convenient location, our gastrointestinal oncology team is composed of:
- Medical oncologists
- Radiation oncologists
- Social workers
As a patient recovers from stomach cancer surgery, this multispecialty team reviews his or her progress as a collaborative tumor board. And, if these experts believe that additional therapies (such as chemotherapy or radiation) would be beneficial, the patient won’t need to travel back to Sarasota – a comprehensive range of stomach cancer treatments are all available at Moffitt. Additionally, discounted hotel rates are available through our local partner hotels, all of which meet our high standards for comfort, cleanliness and infection control.
Referrals are not required to come to our cancer center. Patients from the Sarasota, FL, area can learn more about their options for stomach cancer surgery by calling 1-888-663-3488 or submitting a new patient form online.
