Manish Shah, MD, Bartlett Family Associate Professor of Medicine, director, Gastrointestinal Oncology Program, Weill Cornell Medical College, discusses doing more than just surgery for patients with locally advanced stomach cancer. He says an approach of perioperative chemotherapy is becoming a worldwide standard in the treatment of locally advanced stomach cancer, as well as herceptin in patients with HER2-positive disease.

Shah says while chemotherapy appears to be the current best route, the treatment can do harm to a patient as well.
