At present, the only cure for a carcinoid or any other NET is the removal of the entire tumor and any spread is by surgery. However, even when this is not possible, surgery can often remove critically situated tumor tissue which can relieve symptoms and prolong quality of life.

Our center has developed novel surgical approaches for the treatment of unresectable tumors. Using a multi-disciplinary approach, our team has devised innovative techniques to facilitate removal of tumors without compromising the viability of the other organs. This has the potential to produce favorable long-term survival and low recurrence rates.
