Endocrine cancer surgery

Endocrine cancer affects the parts of the body that secrete hormones. Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) can appear in the lungs or the gastrointestinal tract, including the stomach, pancreas, appendix, intestines, colon and rectum. NETs can also appear in the thymus, thyroid gland, adrenal gland and pituitary gland.

Our Chicagoland surgical oncologists have expertise in endocrine cancer surgery, such as debulking or cytoreductive surgery, minimally invasive laparoscopic resections, and liver transplantation.

The team works alongside other experts to address the many aspects of your well-being.
