Colorectal Cancer: Our Approach and Expertise
Under the leadership of Ravi Kiran in colorectal surgery, we have developed a world-class surgical program. Dr. Alfred Neugut in epidemiology has published many practice-changing papers in the field, and is an international leader in colorectal cancer care. What sets us apart even more from other centers nationally is our collaboration as a team, and particularly our aggressiveness at resecting hepatic metastases.
Currently, those with metastatic disease live over two years on average if they receive all available chemotherapy drugs. However, aggressive resections can often triple that number in selected patients even if they are not able to be cured, and allows cure for a substantial proportion.
