Explore the Center for Gastrointestinal Cancers
The Tucker Gosnell Center for Gastrointestinal Cancers at the Massachusetts General Hospital Cancer Center is one of the largest and most experienced centers in New England for the treatment and care of patients with gastrointestinal cancers. Each year, the Gosnell Center treats more than 14,000 patients for cancers involving the:
- Colon and rectum
- Esophagus (in collaboration with the Center for Thoracic Cancers)
- Liver and bile ducts
- Small intestine
As well as: Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumors (GIST)
Multidisciplinary Patient Care
New patients are generally seen within one week and sooner if necessary. Each patient has a personal care team of experienced gastrointestinal (GI) cancer specialists – gastroenterologists, endoscopists, diagnostic and interventional radiologists, pathologists, GI oncology surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners and oncology nurses – all of whom exclusively treat patients with GI cancers.
We work collaboratively with surgeons in Massachusetts General Hospital’s Gastroesophageal Surgery Program, who specialize in complex surgical techniques to treat patients with gastric and esophageal cancers.
Our multidisciplinary approach to care ensures that patients benefit from a coordinated treatment plan developed by clinicians with highly specialized expertise in all aspects of GI oncology care. We work together with the patient and the referring physician throughout the course of treatment to ensure the best possible outcomes. We also offer a wide range of free educational programs and support services designed to address the physical, psychological and spiritual needs of our patients and their families.
