Radiation therapy is effective and commonly utilized alone or with surgery and chemotherapy for rectal cancer, anal cancer, gastric cancer, pancreatic cancer, and hepatobiliary maligancy. In addition, a highly sophisticated, pin-point radiation called stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is available at UCLA to treat limited metastatic disease from gastrointestinal malignancies.
At UCLA, we have state-of-the art and comprehensive treatments including intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), rapid-arc, 3-dimensional conformal radiation therapy, as well as SBRT to offer to patients with GI malignancies. We collaborate extensively with our colorectal/surgical oncologist colleagues and GI medical oncologist at UCLA to attack the disease in a multi-disciplinary fashion.
