Liver Cancer Program

Hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC), or liver cancer, is on the rise - it is the 5th most common cancer in the world. Tampa General Medical Group physicians work with the Tampa General Hospital liver cancer program, the only program on the west coast of Florida offering transplantation as a curative therapy. The multidisciplinary team includes physicians with expertise in hepatology, hepatobiliary and transplant surgery, as well as interventional radiology and oncology.

Our program provides comprehensive evaluation of patients with benign and malignant tumors and offers rapid diagnosis and personalized care. We are also available to provide consultations and second opinions to help you better care for your patient. To date, we have transplanted over 150 patients with HCC.

Clinical trials in the areas of unresectable liver cancer, liver transplantation, and the epidemiology of liver transplant are underway to provide an opportunity for patients to become enrolled in studies that might not have been available elsewhere.

We work with physicians to offer patients a wide range of diagnostic and treatment services:

Treatment options include:

  • chemoembolization
  • electroporation
  • liver resection
  • radiofrequency ablation
  • stereotactic radiotherapy
  • liver transplantation
  • yttrium 90 radioembolization
