In the world of gastrointestinal cancers, hope and innovation thrive at Acıbadem. Specializing in the comprehensive, personalized, and collaborative treatment of esophageal, stomach, colorectal, pancreatic, and liver cancers, our mission at Acıbadem is to transform lives with exceptional and compassionate care.

Our  Gastrointestinal Oncology Department boasts a suite of advanced  services and a specialized multidisciplinary team of experts. Comprising  gastroenterologists, general surgeons, medical oncologists, radiation  oncologists, interventional radiologists, and nutritionists, we are  united in our goal to provide optimal care to those diagnosed with  gastrointestinal cancers.

The Power of Innovation The treatment of gastrointestinal cancers involves a multifaceted  approach: surgery, radiotherapy, and systemic therapy, which includes  chemotherapy, immunotherapy, and targeted therapies. These treatments,  utilized at various stages of the disease, have revolutionized patient  outcomes over the past decade. The five-year survival rate for  colorectal cancer patients, for instance, has risen to 65%, a  significant improvement from the almost 12% rate for pancreatic cancer,  one of the most formidable cancers, up from just 5% twenty years ago.

Professor of Medical Oncology, Hüseyin Engin, a key player in our team specializing in gastrointestinal cancers, underscores the progress made. "We can now treat colorectal cancer, the most prevalent gastrointestinal cancer, with high success rates using targeted therapy. This innovative approach targets specific abnormalities in cancer cells, effectively halting their growth and spread. Additionally, our radiation oncologists employ MRIdian radiotherapy for pancreatic cancer treatment. This groundbreaking technology enables real-time visualization and tracking of soft tissues and tumors, allowing for an increased radiation dose, yielding better results with minimal toxicity and side effects."

Sumaya's Triumph: A Story of Resilience and  Recovery Colorectal cancer often presents with altered bowel movements, rectal  bleeding, unexplained weight loss, abdominal pain, cramping, and  vomiting. Sumaya, a 63-year-old from Somalia, experienced these symptoms  before being diagnosed with colorectal cancer. Faced with an inoperable  tumor and the daunting prospect of chemotherapy and radiation before  surgery, her brother sought a second opinion from Acıbadem Hospital in Turkey, where he had previously received world-class treatment for a urological issue.

Entrusting her care to Professor Hüseyin Engin, Sumaya embarked on a course of immunotherapy, a treatment suitable for some patients with advanced colorectal cancer. This innovative approach uses specific medicines to destroy cancer cells by activating the immune system to recognize and attack foreign substances, thereby eradicating cancer via immune responses. Sumaya's journey was marked by resilience, and after six months of treatment, her tumor had completely disappeared. Overwhelmed with relief, Sumaya shared, "After completing all the treatment steps, I was overcome with tears of hope and relief. I knew I had made the right decision. I have now been living cancer-free for the past two years. I am immensely grateful to all the physicians and staff at Acıbadem."
