Liver Cancer Treatment

Liver cancer is one of the most serious types, so it is vital that the condition is diagnosed early and you receive appropriate treatment. The treatment you receive will depend on the size and location of tumors. The following treatments are some examples of how liver cancer treatment is approached.

Surgery is often a viable option for removing cancerous tumors from the liver. If appropriate, a tumor and a small amount of healthy tissue are removed. This option is usually recommended when tumors are small, and you are experiencing relatively good liver function. A liver transplant may be necessary if removing tumors through surgery will not suffice.

Localized & Radiotherapy Treatments

There are many localized treatments that are appropriate for patients suffering from liver cancer. Heating, freezing, alcohol injection, chemotherapy drug injection and radiation beads are often viable options for destroying cancer cells before moving on to more aggressive treatment options. When you consult with Dr. David Yamini, he will fully discuss whether localized treatment options are a viable treatment option.

X-rays and protons are examples of energy sources that are used in radiotherapy to kill cancer cells or reduce the size of tumors. This is considered the most aggressive form of treatment but can result in an improved prognosis for patients with advanced stage liver cancer. You can be assured that Dr. Yamini will consider all available options before recommending a treatment to combat your liver cancer. The most important thing is that tumors are detected early, so any treatment you receive will result in the best outcome, leaving you cancer-free and healthy.

Contact our office today if you are experiencing pain or swelling in or around your liver. Dr. Yamini is here to support you through diagnosis and treatment if liver cancer is confirmed.

Nicole R.

Scheduling was extremely easy with Dr. Yamini's staff, I scheduled my Tuesday appointment on Monday afternoon. The staff and Dr. Yamini were courteous and straightforward - even with new patient paperwork I was out the door within an hour!

Dr. Yamini definitely is a great doctor who is very thorough and detail oriented with his diagnosis. He is very passionate about what he does and was able to answer any question or concern. He took his time before my appointment to look through all the documentation to know exactly what was going on. He definitely was able to put me at ease even though I was very worried. I am very satisfied with his services. Thanks!

Mario O.

He was very gentle about my situation yet did not fail to emphasize about the seriousness that could arise from gastrointestinal problems. Few and far between are as professional and caring as Dr. Yamini and his staff. I was 20 minutes late on Friday evening & they still had me in a room in 5 minutes as a new patient.

I can’t say enough great things about my first impression of this doctor and his amazing staff! They got me right in and set me up for everything needed. I’ve been looking for the right GI doctor for years having had a very negative experience with another doctor years ago. Dr. Yamini is not only professional, knowledgeable, respectful, and experienced... this guy is “cool” and nice too! His front desk person, Toni was amazing! She was kind, bright, efficient, patient, and positive! ??

Makes talking about uncomfortable subjects a breeze. Competent and honest: doesn't sell vitamin cleanses and his own probiotics or anything like that. Makes sure your symptoms aren't half-fixed but fully fixed. Gets to the heart of the issue quickly. Good listener. Very sweet receptionist. I hate receiving many phone calls, and she's persistent about making sure you set up an appointment; it was stressing me out. I found the her much easier to connect with once she gave me her cell and said to text.

Babak E.

Thank you Dr. Yamini and Tony. When it comes to patient care and professionalism, I have never received this much care and attention from a physician and the staff. I was able to talk to Dr. Yamini for good period of time allowing me to ask all my questions. Tony you are so cute thank you for scheduling me in last minute.

Kyle K.

I highly recommend Dr. Yamini. He's very personable and actually listens to your issues and concerns, then recommends a reasonable course of action. He was able to properly diagnose my symptoms and get me healthy again. Also his admin Toni is great too, she will help select a facility and verify that your insurance will fully cover. She's really nice and trustworthy as well!

Eric W.

Thorough doctor who cares about his patients, and very meticulous about the details of your ailment. Clearly very knowledgeable and skilled. No wait time for appointments, and the nurse (Toni) is very friendly and follows up appropriately. One of the best doctor experiences I've had and I'd recommend it to anyone.
