At Memorial Sloan Kettering, we understand that fighting cancer can be overwhelming. Our experts are skilled in identifying and treating the various symptoms and complications associated with the treatment of liver metastases, including the emotional and psychological aspects of living with this disease.
Following surgery or other treatments for metastatic liver cancer, you may notice changes in your strength, flexibility, balance, and endurance. Rehabilitation therapy can help improve your quality of life.
At Memorial Sloan Kettering, physical therapists work closely with your medical team to design individualized exercise programs. We offer patients valuable techniques to increase mobility and decrease pain after surgery. Learn more about our rehabilitation services.
