Liver Cancer

If you have liver cancer, it’s important that you receive care from a cancer center with a team approach to care, backed by cutting-edge research. At the Herbert Irving Comprehensive Cancer, our team of experts work together to understand your unique care needs and the specific biology and genetic blueprint of your cancer. We use science and hands-on care to develop a treatment plan just for you.

You’ll receive state-of-the-science treatments that are backed by—and even developed by—the world-renowned researchers at Columbia University. And with your compassionate care team at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital, you’ll receive the supportive care you need to navigate through every step of your cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment to survivorship.

Our Expertise at Your Service

A cancer diagnosis can be overwhelming. Your team of compassionate caregivers are here for you and will work with you to make sure you understand all of your options and can make an informed decision that makes you feel empowered, not helpless.

We use the power of cutting-edge technology and discoveries made in our labs to provide you with personalized, comprehensive care. Your cancer doctors lead clinical research trials that bring new ideas and new treatments to you, before they are widely available.

We specialize in minimally invasive techniques for liver cancer surgery that can minimize risks, make your recovery faster, and produce better long-term outcomes.

We’re ranked among the best hospitals in the nation by U.S. News & World Report’s Best Hospitals, and we’re backed by the power of the National Cancer Institute, which designated Columbia University as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, its highest designation.

Learn About Our Expertise

You’ll Receive State-of-the-Art Care

Your cancer specialists are leaders in liver cancer care and treatment, offering the newest personalized treatments.

We offer "ex vivo" technology, pioneered by Columbia's Tomoaki Kato, MD, which allows tumors that are unresectable by most other facilities to be removed, offering a chance for a cure. 

You’ll Have Your Own Team of Liver Cancer Experts

Liver cancer is relatively uncommon, accounting for just 1% of cancer diagnoses in the US each year. Because of that, it’s important to work with specialists in liver cancer who see many patients each year and are on top of the latest developments in science and treatment.

Our patient-centered multidisciplinary team of nurses, doctors, therapists, and more will coordinate your care from treatment through survivorship, so you have less to worry about.

You’ll Have Access to Leading Clinical Trials

At Columbia Cancer, we believe that our discoveries here will end cancer everywhere. You may be able to participate in a clinical trial alongside current therapies. Our clinical trials give you access to the latest treatments, such as targeted therapies, before they are widely available.

You’ll Have a Wealth of Support Resources

We created our Patient Support Services to treat the whole person, not just the cancer. These services provide care and support outside of traditional surgery, medication, and radiation treatments. They range from complementary treatments like reiki and acupuncture to spiritual support and resources for managing stress.
