Dr. Andrew Coveler is a medical oncologist who treats cancers of the gastrointestinal system. In this video, Dr. Coveler discusses advances in gastrointestinal treatment at SCCA. ?Cancer treatments are good, but they?re not really good enough? says Dr. Coveler. This is what brought him to SCCA where he has become a gastrointestinal cancer specialist. That level of specialization made possible by SCCA can mean the difference between curable and not curable. We treat the some of the rarest forms of cancers from patients around the world. Over the last ten years, the introduction of new drugs like Herceptin, new surgical techniques and robotic surgery have dramatically improved gastrointestinal cancer survival rates. The team environment at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance brings all of the disciplines together to provide our patients with the best care in the world.
