  • Mayo Clinic doctors diagnose and treat a wide spectrum of digestive system cancers, including gastrointestinal stromal tumors. Specialists in digestive tract diseases (gastroenterologists), cancer (oncologists), surgery, rehabilitation, pathology (pathologists) and other specialties care for people with GISTs.
  • Many Mayo Clinic oncologists and surgeons belong to the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center, a multidisciplinary research group. The National Cancer Institute has designated the Mayo Clinic Cancer Center as a comprehensive cancer center due, in part, to its depth and breadth of sarcoma research.
