Conditions We Treat
Mount Sinai surgical oncologists deliver unparalleled, multidisciplinary care. We use the most recent advances in technology to diagnose and treat both benign conditions and a wide array of cancers, including highly complex or recurring conditions.
Our surgeons provide expert care in managing and treating cancer, including the following types of cancer:
- Bile duct cancer—cancer that forms in the thin tube that moves bile from your liver to your gallbladder as part of the digestive process; learn more about bile duct cancer.
- Colorectal cancer—cancer that may affect either the colon that carries food for digestion or the rectum that connects the colon to the anus where stool is eliminated; learn more about colorectal cancer.
- Esophageal cancer—cancer forms in the esophagus, the tube that brings food from the mouth to the stomach; learn more about esophageal cancer.
- Gallbladder cancer—abnormal cells that grow in the gallbladder that stores bile for the digestive process; learn more about gallbladder cancer.
- Liver cancer—cancer cells that grow out of control and disrupt the normal function of the liver to digest food and clean your blood; learn more about liver cancer.
- Melanoma—a serious type of skin cancer; learn more about melanoma.
- Pancreatic cancer—cancerous cells that interrupt the pancreas from producing hormones including insulin; learn more about pancreatic cancer.
