Liver Tumor Program
The Liver Tumor Program offers the latest treatments and procedures along with highly personalized care to give our patients the best long-term outcome for liver cancer and benign liver tumors.
Whether you have been referred by your doctor or are coming for a second opinion after a diagnosis, our team is here to help with the most extraordinary skill and compassion. We take a multidisciplinary approach to your care—this means we have a team of dedicated oncologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists and nurses and other clinicians working together to provide the best care with the most advanced technologies. Your personalized liver treatment may include:
- Robotic liver surgery (Cyberknife)
- New forms of highly targeted chemotherapy
- Chemoembolization, a procedure where cancer cells are targeted while healthy tissue is unharmed
- Radioembolization, in which tiny cancer fighting particles are delivered to the tumor through the blood stream to kill cancer cells
We understand that cancer treatment can be a challenging time for you and your family. That’s why you will have a dedicated team of experts to help guide you through your treatment and ensure great care.
As a world-class teaching hospital of Harvard Medical School, BIDMC is able to offer clinical trials of new treatments for liver cancer and tumors.
