Stomach (Gastric) Cancer Treatment

Advanced Teamwork and the Latest Technology

Surgery

Surgery may be done if  the cancer has not spread to other areas of the body. During the surgery, part or all of your stomach may be removed. It may be a few weeks before you can eat normally again.

Chemotherapy

Chemotherapy uses medicines to destroy cancer cells or to alter their metabolism. You may receive it before or after surgery.  

Our doctors have also helped develop new chemotherapy drugs, based on clinical studies. These drugs treat specific cells or the way cells grow. They include:

  • Targeted therapies that kill cancer cells without affecting healthy cells
  • Drugs that prevent the formation of blood vessels that feed tumors

These can be used with regular chemotherapy and surgery, when needed.

Radiation

Radiation therapy uses high-dose X-rays to kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. You may receive radiation to your stomach or to other areas where the cancer has spread.

Clinical Trials

Some people with stomach cancer take part in clinical trials. Clinical trials are research projects to test medicines and treatments.

Clinical Trials

Medical research finds ways to help people live longer, improve their quality of life and manage or cure disease. This is possible because of the people who volunteer to participate in clinical trials.
