Overview

The mainstay of treatment for gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST) is surgical resection. Surgical resection offers an opportunity to completely cure GIST. Laparoscopic and endoscopic resection are the most preferred route of surgery. Surgical resection of GIST include complete gross resection with an intact pseudocapsule and negative microscopic margins.

Surgical Therapy

Surgery is the definitive therapy and typically the initial therapy for patients of gastrointestinal stromal tumor (GIST).
