Liver Cancer Team

The Liver Cancer Team at Smilow Cancer Hospital offers an entire spectrum of therapies for liver cancer, also known as hepatobiliary carcinoma. The team includes a group of specialists - including hepatobiliary and transplant surgeons, hepatologists, diagnostic and interventional radiologists, pathologists, medical oncologists, and nurses - to reach a consensus on the best treatment for each patient. After treatment, the patient receives care to manage the underlying liver disease, preserve liver function, and survey for possible recurrence of the cancer.
