When the best minds collaborate on treating liver
cancer, sophisticated treatment choices abound.
And lives are saved.
Liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma) is on the rise in the U.S. and is often detected in
patients with cirrhosis. At the University of Illinois Medical Center at Chicago, our specialists
work with each patient and make pinpoint recommendations based on the disease’s
severity and the tumor’s size and location. Their team solutions may include surgical
resection, killing the tumor through heat or treatment with the newest chemotherapy drug.
