Gastrointestinal cancer strikes and spreads fast. Often, surgery is the only answer.

We want to see you before you're sick. Find out if you're high-risk. Let us treat cysts, polyps and disease. Avoid cancer altogether.

Gastrointestinal Cancer Surgery

We specialize in difficult-to-treat GI cancers. Our expertise includes:

Research & Technology

Gastrointestinal Cancer Research

At UVA, our doctors also do research. This means we focus on the hardest cases. It also means we're always looking for new and better treatments.

Funded by the National Institutes of Health, we bring vital research from the lab to you.

Treating GI Cancer Without Surgery

Without making a cut, we can reach and treat digestive organs. This lessens pain and recovery time.

We access your GI tract with fiber-optic tubes. These go through your mouth. Then, stents go through the tube.
