WELLNESS ONCOLOGY & HEMATOLOGY
Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST)
Wellness Oncology & Hematology's Dr. Shaye, Dr. Lashkari, and Dr. Ho specialize in the treatment of gastrointestinal cancers, including Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST). These are rare cancers that originate in the wall of the gastrointestinal tract. Although the most frequent sites of these tumors are the stomach and small intestine, these tumors may form anywhere along the digestive tract from esophagus to the anus. Recently, a group of targeted medications have been identified that are able to control and in most occasions help cure this condition along with surgery.
As highly specialized medical oncologists, Dr. Shaye, Dr. Lashkari, and Dr. Ho will diagnose GIST and launch into a progressive course of treatment, working closely with you to improve your quality of life, while eliminating the cancer cells.
