The Inova Gastrointestinal Cancer Program specializes in the treatment of cancer of the gastrointestinal tract malignancies. This includes cancers of the esophagus, pancreas, stomach, colon, rectum, anus, liver, biliary system and small intestine.
Our care coordination is provided through a multidisciplinary approach where surgical, medical and radiation oncologists are at the same location, working on your personalized treatment plan. Each patient will have access to a Life with Cancer® dietitian who will help provide counseling and recommendations to help support your nutritional needs throughout your cancer journey. Our dietitians utilize a combination of evidence-based nutrition education, diet and behavioral modification. In addition, we offer genetic counseling to assist you in navigating your current risk assessment and helping you determine which genetic testing options are right for you.
