Complex GI Program

The TriStar Sarah Cannon Cancer Center Complex GI Program at TriStar Centennial Medical Center in Nashville, Tenn., offers world class care in an intimate environment, focused on healing and hope. Our team of specialists includes oncologists, surgeons, interventional radiologists, imaging technologists and a nurse navigator work together to provide comprehensive, patient-centered GI care.

We take a coordinated, multidisciplinary approach to the care of each patient with complex GI tumors by facilitating efficient access to multimodality treatments and physician collaboration to determine the best treatment option for these complex cases. Sarah Cannon Research Institute at TriStar Centennial Medical offers access to the latest agents in development for treating cancers and the ability to tailor therapy options specifically for a specific patient.

Our Surgical Oncologists have specialized knowledge of rare, unusual, or complex cancer types and treat a high volume of patients with these conditions.

They also have the ability to more precisely treat the tumor and lesson side effects of treatment with Intensity-Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) and the only CyberKnife® in Middle Tennessee.

We offer both Endoscopic Ultrasound (EUS) to more precisely diagnose and stage cancers and specialized Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) to better treat obtrusive effects of cancers.

Our Interventional Radiologists specialize in cutting edge radioembolization treatments (Selective Internal Radiation Therapy), as well as chemo-embolization and Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA).

This team becomes your partner through each stage of your journey. We offer you a dedicated GI health navigator who will help you overcome barriers and coordinate care with the entire health care team. She will guide and support you and your family through the many challenges of GI cancer and meet your physical, emotional, and spiritual needs with compassion.
