Stomach cancer surgery

Cancer can develop in any of the abdominal organs, including the stomach — the sack-like organ where food gets mixed with gastric juices to start the digestive process. The prognosis for stomach cancer, also called gastric cancer, depends on how deeply into the stomach's layers the tumor has grown, and whether the tumor has spread to regional lymph nodes.

Our Chicagoland surgical oncologists specialize in GI cancer surgeries, including:

  • Endoscopic mucosal resection
  • Endoscopic tumor ablation
  • Gastrectomy (subtotal and total)

Our surgical oncology team is skilled in treating stomach cancers.
