Bile Duct Cancer (Cholangiocarcinoma) is treated in the Multidisciplinary Liver Tumor Clinic at the University of Michigan. Our clinic has been named a Blue Distinction Center for Complex and Rare Cancers as part of a national program by the Blue Cross and Blue Shield Association. That means we offer a comprehensive inpatient cancer care program, delivered by a multidisciplinary team with subspecialty training and distinguished clinical expertise in treating complex and rare subtypes of cancer.
Research and innovation
Our research program is just as collaborative as our clinical program. By involving more than 40 researchers from 18 departments we have made significant strides in researching gastrointestinal cancers. Our goal has been focused upon what biolgic, genetic and/or molecular processes have to take place to give rise to the development of gastrointestinal cancer. We are dedicated to moving our research from the laboratory to the bedside and, to that end, offer a number of clinical trials.
