Treating Liver Cancer in Dallas: "By the Numbers"

Treating Liver Cancer in Dallas: “By the Numbers”

July 4th, 2015. Dallas, TX. Majid, Thompson and Van Meter Interventional Radiologists are publishing a new article that discusses treating liver cancer in Dallas “by the numbers.” According to this prestigious interventional oncology practice, the statistics and numbers found on general websites about cancer can be misleading in many ways, and don’t present a complete picture of liver cancer and how it is treated.

According to these Dallas interventional oncology specialists, “it may in fact be true that because liver cancer is often detected only after it has reached an advanced stage, fewer than 10% of diagnosed patients are candidates for surgical removal of their tumors. But these numbers present a skewed picture, because there are many treatment options offered by the best interventional radiology doctors in Dallas that allow direct treatment of these tumors without invasive surgery.” Using minimally-invasive techniques such as bland embolization, chemoembolization, radioembolization, and portal vein embolization, MTV IR doctors can effectively shrink or destroy tumors that can’t be accessed by surgery.

MTV IR specializes in interventional oncology, and on advanced therapies that address the needs of the 90% of liver cancer patients who are not immediate candidates for surgery. Visit http://www.mtvir.com to learn more about the center and the treatment options they provide.

Treatment Options

Similar to radiologists, MTV IR helps to diagnose cancers and other disorders. As Dallas’ interventional oncology specialists, the practice focuses on high-end, minimally-invasive procedures used to treat different types of cancer. These procedures include radiofrequency ablation, chemoembolization or radioembolization of tumors, portal vein embolization, and treatment of bony metastases. Many of these tumors occur in the liver, and these procedures allow MTV IR to provide the most advanced liver cancer treatment in North Texas.

In addition, because the management of pain is a big part of oncology treatment, MTV IR also serves as a top pain management center in Dallas/Fort Worth, specializing in epidural steroid injections and facet injections, selective nerve root blocks, kyphoplasty, and rhizotomy. The center also devotes a part of its practice to the treatment of problematic women’s health issues, such as uterine fibroids, infertility, and treatment of pelvic pain secondary to pelvic congestion syndrome.
