Multidisciplinary Liver Cancer Treatment Plans
An individual, comprehensive care plan for each liver cancer patient is developed by our multidisciplinary team using national standards. As care proceeds, the team reviews the progress and preferences of each patient, modifying the plan as needed.
Innovative Approach to Liver Cancer Treatment
Virginia Mason physicians are leaders in implementing cutting edge, minimally-invasive technologies that allow liver cancer patients the benefit of shorter hospital stays, faster recovery times and improved post-operative quality of life.
Virginia Mason is a leading cancer clinical trial site, offering more than 60 cancer-related clinical trials each year, including studies sponsored by the National Cancer Institute and industry-sponsored drug trials. Patients benefit from Virginia Mason's Benaroya Research Institute (BRI), a world-renowned research institution that is looking at the causes and cures of autoimmune diseases, and is making those discoveries available to patients through translational (bench to bedside) medicine. BRI cancer trials include the use of chemotherapy, radiation and targeted therapies, as well quality-of-life and symptom management trials. Learn more about our current liver cancer clinical trials.
