The Hepatocellular Carcinoma Clinic evaluates patients with known or suspected tumors or masses in the liver.
The complexity of liver cancer requires input from a multidisciplinary team. Our patients not only receive outstanding care from their individual physician, they also benefit from the consensus opinion, clinical support, and resources provided by the entire UT Southwestern liver team. Our team of more than 20 physicians meets weekly to review patient cases and discuss treatment. In addition, we consult regularly with specialists from:
- Interventional Radiology
- Medical Oncology
- Palliative Care
- Radiation Oncology
- Transplant Hepatology
- Transplant Surgery
Our experience has shown that a team approach improves communication across disciplines and the speed and quality of treatment.
Our Nursing Staff
We also have a dedicated team of nurses who specialize in liver cancer. They work closely with physicians to provide exceptional care during outpatient visits and inpatient hospital stays.
