Stomach Cancer Treatment and Surgery
Mount Sinai has extensive experience treating cancers of the stomach at all stages. Our surgeons work with experts in chemotherapy and radiation therapy to create a custom treatment plan that offers the best possible outcome. These alternate therapies supplement surgical treatment, which typically involves gastrectomy. In this procedure, the surgeon removes all (total) or part (subtotal) of the stomach. In a total gastrectomy, the esophagus is reconnected directly to the small intestine. Our surgeons also perform this operation laparoscopically for early cancers.
Total Gastrectomy and Subtotal Gastrectomy
In some cases, a tumor may prevent food from leaving the stomach and entering the small intestine. This procedure attaches the stomach directly to the small intestine and allows the patient to eat normally.
