Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) liver cancer patients are treated through our Liver Tumor Clinic located in the Surgery Pavilion at University of Washington Medical Center (UWMC). This clinic includes a multidisciplinary team of specialists who will collaborate to design and deliver treatment that’s tailored to your disease.
Most treatment for liver tumors, including surgery, liver transplantation, and interventional radiology procedures, are performed at UWMC. Systemic treatment (chemotherapy) is given at the main SCCA clinic on south Lake Union. Follow-up treatment for patients with advanced disease is often provided at the main SCCA clinic as well.
Your treatment will depend on the type of liver cancer you have, its location, and its stage. Your team may use one or more of the approaches listed below. Listen to a podcast in which members of the Liver Tumor Clinic team talk about advanced techniques for treating liver tumors on the Patient Power website.
