Bile Duct Cancer - Cancer Institute Overview
Taussig Cancer Institute's Program for Gastrointestinal Cancers is a multidisciplinary program that cares for patients with a variety of cancers from the gastrointestinal tract, and all colorectal cancers.
Treatment of these colorectal cancers requires careful and close collaboration with a number of departments, including colorectal surgery, general surgery, gastroenterology, interventional radiology and radiation oncology. Patients are offered a wide variety of clinical trials, which range from large randomized trials sponsored by the National Cancer Institute, to cooperative group trials, industry-sponsored trials, and institutional local trials of experimental drugs designed for the treatment of colorectal cancers.
Patients can also elect to receive standard of care therapies administered with the latest state-of-the-art techniques.
