We have experts in all disciplines vital to treating esophageal cancer, and can provide therapies for people at any stage of the disease, from precancerous lesions to metastatic cancer.
Memorial Sloan Kettering is home to more than 30 doctors and nurses who care for people with esophageal cancer. Because we have experts in all disciplines that are important for diagnosing and treating this disease, we can provide therapies for people at any stage, from precancerous lesions to metastatic cancer.
Explore our recently updated guide to esophageal cancer to learn more about how we care for patients. Our multidisciplinary team approach is particularly important because esophageal cancer is often best managed using a combination of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery. We consider all possible approaches to treatment, and ensure that your care is well coordinated and personalized to your specific needs.
You can also learn about our clinical trials for people with esophageal cancer, and about the pain management and palliative treatments we offer, which can improve your quality of life during and after treatment.
