Gastrointestinal Cancer

The Gastrointestinal (GI) Cancer program, part of The Tisch Cancer Institute at The Mount Sinai Health System in New York City, offers the most up-to-date services available for the diagnosis, treatment, prevention, and management of gastrointestinal cancers.

Our physicians have significant expertise in the full range of gastrointestinal cancers, including:

We offer a comprehensive, multidisciplinary team approach to patient care. Each of our doctors has a specific area of focus, such as gastroenterology, surgery, or medical oncology. Together, these specialists participate in weekly meetings during which they discuss the best approach to each patient’s specific situation. At Mount Sinai, patients do not get just one doctor, but a whole team of expert physicians.

Mount Sinai's Gastrointestinal Medical Oncology practice has been recognized by the Quality Oncology Practice Initiative (QOPI(r)) Certification Program, an affiliate of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO). The QOPI(r) Certification Program provides a three-year certification for outpatient hematology-oncology practices that meet the highest standards for quality cancer care.

QOPI certification signifies that an outpatient oncology practice has met core standards in a variety of areas that affect the quality of patient care, including staff training and education, chemotherapy orders and drug preparation, patient consent and education, safe chemotherapy administration, and monitoring and assessment of patient well-being. Mount Sinai is the first site in Manhattan to receive QOPI-certification and is one of only 200 practices currently certified nationwide.
