Liver Cancer

Harold C. Simmons Comprehensive Cancer Center

UT Southwestern Medical Center’s multidisciplinary liver cancer program offers the region’s most advanced tools, technologies, and therapies for diagnosing and treating all types of liver cancer.

As the only National Cancer Institute-designated comprehensive cancer center in North Texas, we deliver the best cancer care available today and push to discover new treatments. NCI designation means we offer patients the ability to participate in the broadest possible range of clinical trials, with access to potential therapies not available at other facilities.

Individualized Care for All Types of Liver Cancer

Several types of cancer can form in the liver. The most common is hepatocellular carcinoma; other types include intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma and hepatoblastoma.

At UT Southwestern, our specialized liver cancer team comprises transplant hepatologists, surgeons, medical and radiation oncologists, interventional radiologists, and other specialists, all working together to deliver individualized patient care and bring about the best possible outcomes for patients with any type of liver cancer.

From diagnosis to treatment and beyond, our team is here for every patient and every family.
