Cancer Care

Gastrointestinal and Colorectal Cancers

Ascension offers expert care and a range of individualized treatment options for patients facing a gastrointestinal- or colorectal-cancer diagnosis.


Gastrointestinal cancers, or cancers of the digestive tract, are the most common types of cancer in the United States; they may affect the esophagus, stomach, gallbladder, liver, pancreas or the small bowel. Colorectal cancer is a gastrointestinal cancer specific to the lower part of the digestive tract.

Ascension's cancer-care team — including medical oncologists, gastroenterologists and surgeons —
provides a variety of effective treatment options, all with special attention to your quality of life and minimizing side effects.

Because cancer patients build relationships with multiple doctors, nurses and specialists, we make the process as simple as possible. By bringing your caregivers together to create your personalized treatment plan, your team can care for your full health and well-being — body, mind and spirit.
