Colorectal Cancer

Colorectal Cancer Treatment Outcomes

Patients with gastrointestinal cancer benefit from the coordinated efforts of Cleveland Clinic's multidisciplinary teams, comprising surgeons and physicians from the departments of Colorectal Surgery and General Surgery, Gastroenterology, Interventional Radiology, Medical Oncology and Radiation Oncology. Tailored treatment regimens include adjuvant therapy following surgical resection for patients with tumors at risk for recurrence, as well as systemic therapies for patients with inoperable, incurable advanced disease. Clinical trials provide important treatment options to patients. The data shown here demonstrates superior outcomes in advanced-stage colorectal cancer.
