Clinic Overview

Body

Expert, multidisciplinary care to eradicate liver cancers 

Center for Advanced Minimally Invasive Liver Oncologic Therapy (CAMILOT) is a first-of-its-kind organization in the Pacific Northwest dedicated to treating patients with liver cancers using the most advanced and least invasive approaches. 

The Center brings together experts across multiple disciplines to develop, refine and deliver treatments to eradicate liver cancers while preserving liver function and patients’ overall health. Our principal objective is to effectively treat primary and secondary liver cancers using minimally invasive cutting-edge techniques, to accelerate patients’ recovery and to enhance their longevity and well-being. Traditional therapies often required protracted in-hospital recovery; we strive to reduce the hospital stay to a minimum and often deliver therapies as outpatient procedures.

CAMILOT represents the ‘therapeutic’ arm of our long-standing Liver Tumor Clinic at the University of Washington Medical Center. The Clinic was established in 1998 and currently serves nearly 600 new visits annually, making it one of the busiest multidisciplinary clinics devoted to the treatment of liver tumors in the country. 

As the only university-based academic center in the Puget Sound area, the Liver Tumor Clinic has been pivotal in the introduction of novel treatments such as thermal and non-thermal ablations, minimally invasive liver surgery, catheter-based radiation therapy and external beam proton therapy, in addition to many clinical trials. Over the years, we have modified and advanced many of the procedures so that they can be safely delivered with the least amount of stress to the patient’s body, therefore minimizing suffering, reducing time spent in the hospital, enhancing recovery at home and returning patients to quality and meaningful living.

In the past year, approximately 80 percent of more than 400 treatments delivered for liver cancers were performed using minimally invasive procedures at the University of Washington Medical Center. CAMILOT was created to meet the increasing demand for effective minimally invasive cancer care.
