Our Approach and Expertise

Gastric cancer is a curable disease with effective treatment options. When discovered in its early stages, gastric cancer can be eliminated with complete resection of the tumor alone. Effective treatment of advanced gastric cancer requires a comprehensive strategy to achieve long-term survival and maintain a good quality of life.

The Gastric Cancer Care Program of NewYork-Presbyterian/Columbia University Medical Center is committed to providing the highest quality of care through early detection initiatives and multidisciplinary collaborative care, including expert teams in:
