  • Advanced techniques for surgical removal of NETs, including minimally invasive and robotic procedures, as well as complex approaches to remove and destroy NETs that have spread to the liver.
  • Leading-edge technologies like precision-enhancing navigation-controlled ablation of liver tumors and Peptide Receptor Radionuclide Therapy (PRRT).
  • Genetic counseling with physicians experienced in treating patients with NETs linked to hereditary conditions. UChicago Medicine has the only Von Hippel-Lindau Alliance-certified clinical care center in the state.
