Stomach Cancer

The gastrointestinal cancer team at the UofL Brown Cancer Center brings together a team of experts to treat cancers of the stomach with cutting-edge techniques and therapies. 

Since treating stomach cancer often involves more than one type of therapy, your personalized course of treatment is planned by a group of experts. This team approach is the way UofL Brown Cancer Center provides you with the best possible treatment of your cancer.

Our expert team includes radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, surgeons and nutritionists.  These specially trained experts customize your care, including the most advanced therapies with the least impact on your body.  Our gastrointestinal cancer doctors don’t just specialize in cancer; they specialize specifically in treatment of stomach cancer.

At UofL Brown Cancer Center, your care for stomach cancer is personalized and will likely include surgery and possibly radiation, chemotherapy or other treatments, such as targeted therapies.

Stomach cancer and treatment can have profound effects on nutrition.  Our nutritionists and cancer rehab physicians are involved in your care from the very beginning to minimize the long-term effects of treatment and promote strength and well-being during treatment. 

At UofL Brown Cancer Center, we treat all of you, not just your cancer.
