At the GI Cancer Prevention Program, we help patients assess and
reduce their risk of developing cancers of the colon, small intestine,
stomach, pancreas, liver, and esophagus. Features of our program include:
Highly trained specialists - The expert gastroenterologists and
other specialists on our team have extensive experience evaluating and
treating patients who are at risk of developing gastrointestinal (GI) cancers.
Advanced treatments and research - Our program incorporates the
latest medical technology, some of which our doctors have personally
helped to develop. Our team also participates in pioneering research
that advances detection and treatment of precancerous conditions, as
well as early detection and minimally invasive treatment of early
stage gastrointestinal cancers.
Collaborative care - We work closely with other Stanford
programs including Cancer
Genetics, Surgery and Radiology in order to provide our patients
with comprehensive care.
