Liver cancers are very common and also very challenging to treat. Innovative treatment options lead to early staging and positive outcomes for patients with both primary and metastatic cancers. In some cases, liver transplantation can be an option for treatment.
For some patients with carcinoid tumors there is a revolutionary surgery available at The Nebraska Medical Center which takes advantage of the liver’s ability to regenerate. at the medical center's Carcinoid Clinic, patients meet doctors with a variety of specialties during their visit. This gives the patient input from both the surgical and internal medicine and medical oncology perspectives. The carcinoid clinic operates the last Friday of each month.
The medical center is also home to an internationally known liver and intestinal transplant program and the UNMC Eppley Cancer Center. The Eppley Cancer Center is recognized by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and is a founding member institution of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN).
