Treatment options

The preferred treatment for patients with liver tumors is surgical removal, also called resection.  Other options include:

  • Chemotherapy
  • Chemoembolization
  • IntraOperative MRI
  • Radio frequency ablation
  • Microwave ablation
  • Therasphere treatment

Clinical research

As part of our comprehensive services, Norton Cancer Institute also gives patients the opportunity to participate in innovative National Cancer Institute and industry-sponsored clinical research studies.
