Liver Cancer

The University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center’s Liver Tumor Program has seen thousands of patients with hepatic (liver) tumors, primary or metastatic. Our program developed the radiological (imaging) criteria to more accurately diagnose primary liver tumors (where the tumor originated). In fact, we have the largest funded research program in primary liver tumors in the U.S. and are worldwide pioneers in the radiation therapy for primary liver tumors. The Multidisciplinary Liver Tumor Clinic, co-directed by Dr. Theodore Welling and Dr. Neehar Parikh, is held on Tuesdays and Fridays at the Cancer Center. The clinic has been named a Blue Distinction Center for liver cancer by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. That means we offer a comprehensive inpatient and outpatient cancer care program, delivered by a multidisciplinary team of subspecialty training and distinguished clinical expertise in treating complex and rare subtypes of cancer.
